Whenever a visitor opens your site, the Internet browser sends a request to the server, which executes it and provides the desired data as a response. A standard HTML website uses minimal system resources because it is static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use much more processing time. Every webpage that's served creates two kinds of load - CPU load, that depends on the span of time the web server spends executing a certain script; and MySQL load, that depends on the amount of database queries generated by the script while the client browses the website. Larger load shall be produced if a whole lot of people look through a particular website at the same time or if a lot of database calls are made at the same time. Two good examples are a discussion board with thousands of users or an online store in which a client enters a term within a search box and a large number of items are searched. Having detailed statistics about the load your Internet site generates will help you improve the content or see if it is time for you to switch to a more powerful sort of hosting service, if the Internet site is simply getting quite popular.
MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Hosting
Using the Hepsia CP, included with all our shared hosting plans, you will be able to see rather comprehensive stats concerning the resources which your websites use. One of the sections will give you info on the CPU load, such as the amount of processing time the hosting server spent, the amount of time it took for your scripts to be executed and what amount of memory they used. Statistics are automatically produced every 6 hours and you can also see the types of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, and so forth. MySQL load data are listed inside a separate section where you'll be able to see all the queries on an hourly, daily, and so forth. basis. You can go back and compare data from different months to determine if some update has altered the resource usage if the total amount of site visitors has not changed much. Thus, you will see if your Internet site needs to be optimized, which will result in a better functionality and an improved user experience.
