When a visitor opens your Internet site, the web browser sends a request to the server, which executes it and provides the necessary information as a response. A basic HTML site uses minimal system resources because it's static, but database-driven platforms are more requiring and use much more processing time. Every single page that's served generates two kinds of load - CPU load, that depends on the span of time the server spends executing a specific script; and MySQL load, that depends on the number of database queries produced by the script while the user browses the website. Larger load shall be produced if a whole lot of people browse a given website concurrently or if a considerable amount of database calls are made simultaneously. Two good examples are a discussion board with many users or an online store in which a visitor enters a term in a search box and tens of thousands of items are searched. Having in depth statistics about the load that your site generates will allow you to boost the content or see if it's time to switch to a more powerful sort of website hosting service, if the site is simply getting extremely popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Hosting

Our system keeps comprehensive info about the system resource usage of every cloud hosting account which is set up on our top-notch cloud platform, so in case you decide to host your websites with us, you will have full access to this information from the Hepsia Control Panel, which you will get with the account. The CPU load data feature the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, as well as how much system memory they used. You can also see what processes generated the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, etc. The MySQL load statistics section will show you the total amount queries to each particular database that you have created within your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account altogether and the normal hourly rate. Comparing these numbers to the visitor data will tell you if your sites perform the way they need to or if they require some optimization, that will improve their performance and the overall website visitor experience.
