Every time a visitor opens your website, the web browser sends a request to the hosting server, which executes it and provides the desired information as a response. A standard HTML Internet site uses very little system resources because it is static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use a lot more processing time. Each webpage that's served produces 2 kinds of load - CPU load, that depends on the length of time the hosting server spends executing a specific script; and MySQL load, which depends on the amount of database queries generated by the script while the customer browses the website. Larger load will be produced if a lot of people look through a certain site at the same time or if numerous database calls are made at the same time. Two good examples are a discussion board with tens of thousands of users or an online store where a visitor enters a term inside a search box and tens of thousands of items are searched. Having thorough statistics about the load which your Internet site generates will enable you to optimize the content or see if it is time to switch to a more powerful sort of web hosting service, if the website is simply getting very popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Web Hosting

If you host your Internet sites within a web hosting account with us, you shall have access to thorough CPU and MySQL data that will allow you to monitor their functionality. You can easily see the data with a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The CPU Load section will show you the total time period the web server spent on your scripts and just how much memory was needed, along with the time it took for the scripts to be executed. The daily view is the default one, but you could also see the data from the preceding months. The MySQL Load section will provide you with additional information about the number of queries to every database that you have created within the account. Once again, you are able to see month-to-month, daily and per hour data, that will give you information that's different from the traffic or the number of visitors that you get. That way, you can see if the websites need some optimization.
