The CPU load depends upon the amount of time a server spends executing a script each time a visitor opens a webpage on a certain script-driven website. Static HTML sites use barely any CPU time, but this isn't so with the much more sophisticated and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more customers open this sort of a website, the more load shall be produced on the server and if the database is big, the MySQL server shall be loaded too. An illustration of what may cause high load is an online store with a huge number of products. If it's popular, many people will be visiting it all at once and if they search for items, the entire database which contains all the products shall also be continuously accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load statistics will give you an idea of how the site is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you just need a more potent web hosting solution - if the Internet site is extremely popular and the current setup can't deal with the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Hosting
If you host your websites in a cloud hosting account with our company, you'll have access to in depth CPU and MySQL stats that will permit you to monitor their functionality. You are able to see the statistics with a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia CP. The CPU Load section can tell you the total time period the hosting server spent on your scripts and the amount of memory was needed, plus the time it took for the scripts to be executed. The day-to-day view is the default one, but you may also see the numbers from the past months. The MySQL Load section offer you additional information about the amount of queries to every single database that you have set up within the account. Once again, you are able to see monthly, everyday and hourly statistics, that will give you information which is different from the traffic or the number of visitors which you get. In this way, you can see if the Internet sites need some optimization.
