If you have an HTML Internet site, most likely it uses a really small amount of resources because it's static, but that isn't the situation with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and provide considerably more features. Such Internet sites produce load on the website hosting server each time someone browses them, simply because the web server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the info requested by the visitor's browser. A popular discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is generated every time a thread is opened or a user searches for a given term. If lots of people connect to the forum at the same time, or if each and every search involves checking a large number of database entries, this may create high load and affect the overall performance of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can present you with data about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data and see if the Internet site has to be optimized or migrated to a different sort of website hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load in case the Internet site is popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Web Hosting

Using the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all our web hosting plans, you will be able to see very detailed stats concerning the resources which your websites use. One of the sections will give you information about the CPU load, such as how much processing time the server spent, the length of time it took for your scripts to be executed and how much memory they used. Stats are consistently created every six hours and you may also see the different types of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, and so on. MySQL load data are listed in a separate section where you'll be able to see all the queries on a per hour, daily, and so on. basis. You'll be able to go back and compare statistics from various months to determine if some update has changed the resource usage if the number of website visitors has not changed much. Thus, you can see if your website needs to be optimized, that will lead to a better overall performance and an improved user experience.
