The CPU load is dependent upon the time a web server spends executing a script any time a visitor opens a webpage on a particular script-driven site. Static HTML Internet sites use hardly any CPU time, but it is not the situation with the significantly more sophisticated and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more people open this sort of an Internet site, the more load will be created on the web server and if the database is large, the MySQL server will be loaded as well. A good example of what could cause high load is a web-based store with thousands of products. If it is popular, lots of people will be visiting it at the same time and if they search for items, the entire database that contains all of the products will also be continuously accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load stats can provide an idea of how the Internet site is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you just need a more powerful web hosting solution - if the Internet site is extremely popular and the established setup cannot cope with the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Since our system keeps comprehensive stats for the load which each semi-dedicated server account generates, you shall be aware of how your websites perform at any time. After you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with each and every account, you can check out the section devoted to the system load. There, you can easily see the processing time our system spent on your scripts, the length of time it took for the scripts to be actually executed and what sorts of processes generated the load - cron jobs, PHP pages, Perl scripts, etcetera. You could also see the total number of queries to each database inside your semi-dedicated account, the total daily stats for the account in general, along with the average hourly rate. With both the CPU and the MySQL load statistics, you could always go back to past days or months and examine the overall performance of your Internet sites after some update or after a major increase in the number of your site visitors.
