If you have an HTML site, it likely uses a really small amount of system resources simply because it's static, but this isn't the case with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and provide you with considerably more features. This type of sites produce load on the website hosting server anytime someone browses them, because the server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the information requested by the visitor's browser. A famous discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is created each time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a particular name. If a lot of people connect to the forum concurrently, or if each search involves checking hundreds of thousands of database entries, this can generate high load and affect the efficiency of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can provide data about the site’s efficiency, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to decide if the Internet site needs to be optimized or transferred to a new kind of web hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load in case the site is really popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Web Hosting

Using the Hepsia CP, provided with all our web hosting packages, you'll be able to see very comprehensive data concerning the system resources which your Internet sites use. One of the sections will give you info on the CPU load, such as how much processing time the web server spent, the span of time it took for your scripts to be executed and exactly how much memory they used. Stats are automatically created every 6 hours and you could also see the different types of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, etc. MySQL load data are listed in an individual section where you are able to see all the queries on an hourly, daily, etc. basis. You could go back and compare stats from various months to find out if some update has transformed the resource usage if the number of website visitors has not changed much. That way, you can see if your site needs to be optimized, that will lead to a better general performance and an improved user experience.
