The CPU load depends on the length of time a web server spends executing a script any time a visitor opens a webpage on a certain script-driven site. Static HTML sites use hardly any CPU time, but it is not the case with the far more advanced and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more people open this type of an Internet site, the more load shall be produced on the server and if the database is big, the MySQL server will be loaded as well. An illustration of what could cause high load is a web-based store with a large number of products. If it's popular, plenty of people shall be browsing it all at once and if they seek out items, the entire database containing all of the products will also be constantly accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load stats will offer you an idea of how the site is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you simply just need a more effective web hosting solution - if the Internet site is extremely popular and the current setup can't handle the load.

You can see the stats with a couple of clicks within your Hepsia CP. The CPU Load section will reveal to you the total time the web server spent on your scripts and what amount of memory was required, as well as the time it took for the scripts to be executed. The everyday view is the default one, but you are able to also see the data from the previous months. The MySQL Load section give you more info about the total amount of queries to each database that you have created in the account. Once again, you are able to see month-to-month, everyday and hourly data, that will give you info that is different from the traffic or the number of visitors you get.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all semi-dedicated servers that we offer, features a section committed to the system resource usage and the info there will tell you if your Internet sites operate properly and if the load they generate corresponds to the number of received visitors. The CPU load stats include the script execution time and how much time it took for the web server to process the requests, and what types of processes created the load. The MySQL stats will show you how frequently every single database was accessed, plus daily and by the hour stats for the whole account. With both kinds of stats, you'll be able to check the numbers for each of the past days and months, so you can easily see how the sites perform as the traffic to them grows or after you have applied some update.
