The CPU load depends on the time period a server spends executing a script each time a visitor opens a webpage on a certain script-driven website. Static HTML Internet sites use hardly any CPU time, but it's not the case with the much more sophisticated and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more clients open this kind of a site, the more load shall be created on the web server and if the database is very large, the MySQL server will be loaded also. An illustration of what could cause high load is an online store with a huge number of products. If it's popular, lots of people shall be visiting it all at once and if they look for items, the whole database which contains all the products will also be frequently accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load stats will give you an idea of how the site is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you simply just need a more potent web hosting solution - if the site is very popular and the established setup can't handle the load.

Using the Hepsia CP, provided with all of our web hosting plans, you'll be able to see incredibly detailed data regarding the system resources that your Internet sites use. One of the sections will give you information about the CPU load, including how much processing time the server spent, the time it took for your scripts to be executed and how much memory they used. Statistics are automatically created every 6 hours and you could also see the different types of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, and so forth. MySQL load stats are listed inside a different section in which you'll be able to see all the queries on a per hour, everyday, etc. basis. You could go back and compare stats from various months to determine if some update has altered the resource usage if the number of website visitors hasn't changed much. Thus, you can determine if your site needs to be optimized, that will result in a better functionality and an improved user experience.

The CPU load data include the script execution time and how much time it took for the server to process the requests, plus what kinds of processes produced the load. The MySQL statistics shall show you how often every single database was accessed, as well as daily and by the hour stats for the whole account. With both forms of statistics, you'll be able to check the numbers for any of the past days and months, so you can see how sites perform as the traffic to them increases or after you have applied some update.
