When a visitor opens your website, the browser sends a request to the web server, which executes it and provides the desired information as a response. A simple HTML Internet site uses minimal system resources due to the fact that it is static, but database-driven platforms are more requiring and use more processing time. Each and every webpage that's served produces 2 forms of load - CPU load, which depends on the time period the hosting server spends executing a certain script; and MySQL load, that depends on the total number of database queries produced by the script while the customer browses the site. Larger load will be created if a whole lot of people browse a particular Internet site simultaneously or if a lot of database calls are made simultaneously. 2 examples are a discussion board with a large number of users or an online store in which a visitor enters a term in a search box and tens of thousands of items are searched. Having detailed statistics about the load your Internet site generates can help you boost the content or see if it's time for you to switch to a more powerful sort of website hosting service, if the website is simply getting extremely popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Website Hosting

Using the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all of our shared website hosting packages, you'll be able to see incredibly detailed stats about the resources which your sites use. One of the sections will give you info on the CPU load, like the amount of processing time the hosting server spent, the time it took for your scripts to be executed and how much memory they used. Statistics are automatically generated every six hours and you could also see the types of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, etc. MySQL load stats are listed within a separate section in which you can see all the queries on a per hour, day-to-day, etc. basis. You'll be able to go back and compare data from various months to find out whether some update has transformed the resource usage if the total amount of visitors hasn't changed much. That way, you will see if your site needs to be optimized, that'll result in a better performance and an improved user experience.
