The CPU load is dependent upon the amount of time a server spends executing a script when a visitor opens a webpage on a specific script-driven website. Static HTML Internet sites use barely any CPU time, but this is not the case with the much more advanced and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more customers open this type of a website, the more load shall be produced on the server and if the database is very large, the MySQL server will be loaded as well. An example of what may cause high load is an online store with thousands of products. If it's popular, plenty of people shall be exploring it at the same time and if they seek out items, the entire database which contains all the products will also be continuously accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load data can provide an idea of how the website is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you just need a more powerful website hosting solution - if the site is popular and the existing setup cannot cope with the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Website Hosting
Our system keeps comprehensive info about the system resource usage of each and every shared website hosting account that's set up on our top-notch cloud platform, so if you choose to host your websites with us, you'll have full access to this information through the Hepsia Control Panel, which you shall get with the account. The CPU load statistics include the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, as well as what amount of system memory they used. You may see what processes generated the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, and so forth. The MySQL load data section will show you the number of queries to each particular database you have created within your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account altogether and the standard hourly rate. Comparing these figures to the visitor data will tell you if your sites perform the way they have to or if they need some optimization, that'll improve their performance and the overall site visitor experience.
