If you have an HTML site, it probably uses a very small amount of system resources due to the fact that it's static, but this isn't the case with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and provide you with far more functions. This sort of websites create load on the website hosting server each time someone browses them, because the web server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the information requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A famous discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is generated any time a thread is opened or a user looks for a certain word. If many people connect to the forum all at once, or if each search involves checking a large number of database entries, this can create high load and affect the functionality of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can provide information about the site’s performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to decide if the website must be optimized or transferred to a new kind of web hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load in the event that the site is very popular.
MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers
Because our system keeps in depth statistics for the load which each semi-dedicated server account generates, you'll be aware of how your websites perform at any time. After you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with every single account, you should check out the section committed to the system load. There, you are able to see the processing time our system spent on your scripts, the amount of time it took for the scripts to be actually executed and what sorts of processes created the load - cron jobs, PHP pages, Perl scripts, and so forth. Also you can see the amount of queries to every database within your semi-dedicated account, the total daily numbers for the account in general, and also the average hourly rate. With both the CPU and the MySQL load data, you could always go back to past days or months and review the efficiency of your Internet sites after some update or after a significant increase in the number of your visitors.
