The CPU load depends upon the amount of time a web server spends executing a script each time a visitor opens a page on a specific script-driven Internet site. Static HTML sites use barely any CPU time, but it is not the case with the considerably more advanced and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more customers open such a site, the more load shall be generated on the server and if the database is very large, the MySQL server will be loaded too. A good example of what may cause high load is an Internet store with a large number of products. If it's popular, a lot of people shall be visiting it simultaneously and if they seek out items, the whole database that contains all of the products will also be continuously accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load statistics will provide you with an idea of how the website is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you just need a more potent website hosting solution - if the Internet site is very popular and the current setup can't handle the load.

The CPU load stats feature the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, along with what amount of system memory they used. You could also see what processes created the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, etc. The MySQL load data section will show you the total amount queries to each particular database which you have created inside your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account as a whole and the standard hourly rate. Comparing these figures to the site visitor statistics will tell you if your Internet sites perform the way they ought to or if they need some optimization, that will improve their efficiency and the overall site visitor experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want to see in depth statistics with regards to the load produced by your sites, it won't take more than just a few clicks to do this. The Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all semi-dedicated servers that we offer, has a section devoted to the system resource usage and the info there shall tell you if your sites perform well and if the load they generate corresponds to the number of received visitors. The CPU load statistics include the script execution time and the amount of time it took for the server to process the requests, plus what types of processes generated the load. The MySQL stats shall show you how many times every single database was accessed, as well as everyday and hourly data for the entire account. With both forms of stats, you can check the numbers for any of the past days and months, so you can easily see how the sites perform as the traffic to them increases or once you've applied some update.
