The CPU load is dependent upon the length of time a server spends executing a script each time a visitor opens a webpage on a given script-driven Internet site. Static HTML websites use hardly any CPU time, but it's not so with the significantly more complex and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more people open this kind of a website, the more load shall be created on the web server and if the database is big, the MySQL server shall be loaded too. An example of what could cause high load is a web-based store with thousands of products. If it's popular, plenty of people shall be browsing it all at once and if they look for items, the whole database which contains all of the products will also be frequently accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load data will give you an idea of how the website is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply need a more potent web hosting solution - if the Internet site is very popular and the existing setup cannot cope with the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Website Hosting
If you host your sites in a cloud website hosting account with our company, you shall have access to comprehensive CPU and MySQL stats that will enable you to monitor their functionality. You could see the stats with a couple of clicks in your Hepsia CP. The CPU Load section will show you the total time the hosting server spent on your scripts and the amount of memory was needed, as well as the time it took for the scripts to be executed. The daily view is the default one, but you can also see the stats from the previous months. The MySQL Load section offer more details about the number of queries to each and every database that you have created inside the account. Once again, you can see per month, day-to-day and per hour data, that shall give you data that is different from the traffic or the number of visitors which you get. Thus, you can determine if the sites require some optimization.
