If you have an HTML site, it likely uses a really small amount of system resources as it is static, but that isn't so with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and provide way more features. This kind of Internet sites generate load on the hosting server each time anyone browses them, since the hosting server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the info requested by the visitor's web browser. A well-known discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is produced every time a thread is opened or an end user searches for a given phrase. If a lot of people connect to the forum simultaneously, or if each and every search involves checking tens of thousands of database entries, this may produce high load and affect the functionality of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can give you info about the site’s functionality, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data to make a decision if the site must be optimized or migrated to another kind of web hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load if the website is extremely popular.

One of the sections will give you info on the CPU load, like the amount of processing time the server spent, how much time it took for your scripts to be executed and the amount of memory they used. Stats are consistently produced every 6 hours and you could also see the different kinds of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, and so on. MySQL load statistics are listed within an individual section in which you can see all the queries on an hourly, everyday, etc. basis. You can go back and compare data from various months to find out whether some update has changed the resource usage if the number of website visitors hasn't changed much. In this way, you can determine if your site needs to be optimized, which will result in a better performance and an improved user experience.

If you need to see thorough stats with regards to the load produced by your websites, it won't take more than a couple of mouse clicks to do this. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all semi-dedicated servers that we offer, features a section devoted to the system resource usage and the data there shall tell you if your websites function properly and if the load they generate corresponds to the number of received visitors. The CPU load stats include the script execution time and the amount of time it took for the web server to process the requests, as well as what kinds of processes produced the load. The MySQL stats shall show you how many times each individual database was accessed, as well as daily and by the hour stats for the whole account. With both kinds of stats, you are able to check the numbers for every one of the past days and months, so you can easily see how sites perform as the traffic to them rises or once you've applied some update.
