The CPU load depends on the time a server spends executing a script any time a visitor opens a page on a given script-driven Internet site. Static HTML Internet sites use barely any CPU time, but it's not the situation with the much more sophisticated and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more customers open such a site, the more load shall be generated on the server and if the database is large, the MySQL server shall be loaded too. An example of what could cause high load is an online store with a large number of products. If it's popular, lots of people will be browsing it all at once and if they look for items, the entire database that contains all the products will also be continuously 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 site is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply need a more efficient website hosting solution - if the site is popular and the existing setup can't handle the load.

Using the Hepsia CP, bundled with all our website hosting offers, you will be able to see rather detailed stats about the system resources your sites use. One of the sections will give you details about the CPU load, like how much processing time the server spent, the length of time it took for your scripts to be executed and what amount of memory they used. Statistics are routinely generated every 6 hours and you could also see the kinds of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, and so on. MySQL load data are listed in a different section where you are able to see all the queries on an hourly, everyday, and so forth. basis. You can go back and compare statistics from various months to find out if some update has transformed the resource usage if the number of visitors has not changed much. That way, you will see if your website needs to be optimized, that'll give you a better performance and an improved user experience.

If you need to see thorough stats about the load created by your sites, it won't take more than a couple of mouse clicks to do this. The Hepsia hosting CP, included with all semi-dedicated servers that we offer, features a section devoted to the system resource usage and the information there will tell you if your websites function properly and if the load they create corresponds to the amount of received site visitors. The CPU load statistics include the script execution time and the length of time it took for the server to process the requests, plus what types of processes created the load. The MySQL data will show you how frequently every single database was accessed, and everyday and per hour stats for the whole account. With both sorts of statistics, you'll be able to check the numbers for any of the past days and months, so you can easily see how sites perform as the traffic to them increases or once you've applied some update.
