The CPU load depends upon the amount of time a web server spends executing a script whenever 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 advanced and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more people open this kind of a site, the more load will be generated on the server and if the database is big, the MySQL server will be loaded as well. A good example of what can cause high load is an Internet store with thousands of products. If it is popular, lots of people shall be visiting it simultaneously and if they search for items, the entire database that contains all of the products will also be constantly accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load statistics can provide an idea of how the website is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply just need a more effective web hosting solution - if the site is extremely popular and the current setup cannot deal with the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Hosting
Our system keeps detailed info about the system resource usage of each shared hosting account which is set up on our top-notch cloud platform, so given that you opt to host your sites with our company, you'll have full access to this info from the Hepsia Control Panel, which you'll get with the account. The CPU load stats include the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, as well as what amount of system memory they used. You can also see what processes created the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, etcetera. The MySQL load statistics section will show you the number of queries to each individual database that you have created inside your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account overall and the typical hourly rate. Comparing these figures to the site visitor data will tell you if your sites perform the way they should or if they require some optimization, that will improve their efficiency and the overall visitor experience.
