The CPU load depends upon the length of time a hosting server spends executing a script when a visitor opens a page on a certain script-driven site. Static HTML sites use barely any CPU time, but it is not so with the much more complex and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more customers open this type of a website, the more load shall be created on the server and if the database is large, the MySQL server shall be loaded as well. An example of what could cause high load is an Internet store with a large number of products. If it is popular, many people will be browsing it all at once and if they look for items, the whole database containing all of the products will also be frequently accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load data will give you an idea of how the Internet site is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you simply just need a more effective hosting solution - if the site is extremely popular and the established setup can't cope with the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Website Hosting
Our system keeps detailed info about the system resource usage of every single cloud website hosting account which is created on our top-notch cloud platform, so if you decide to host your websites with us, you will have full access to this information through the Hepsia Control Panel, which you will get with the account. The CPU load stats feature the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, plus the amount of system memory they used. You could also see what processes created the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, etcetera. The MySQL load statistics section will show you the amount of queries to each specific database that you have created within your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account as a whole and the average hourly rate. Comparing these statistics to the visitor statistics will tell you if your sites perform the way they have to or if they require some optimization, which will improve their functionality and the overall site visitor experience.
