The CPU load depends on the time period a server spends executing a script every time a visitor opens a webpage on a particular script-driven website. Static HTML sites use hardly any CPU time, but this is not the case with the significantly more advanced and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more clients open such an Internet site, the more load shall be generated on the web server and if the database is big, the MySQL server will be loaded too. A good example of what could cause high load is an online store with tens of thousands of products. If it is popular, plenty of people will be visiting it all at once and if they look for items, the entire database which contains all of the products shall also be constantly accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load statistics will offer you an idea of how the site is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you simply need a more effective hosting solution - if the Internet site is very popular and the existing setup can't cope with the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Hosting
Our system keeps comprehensive information about the system resource usage of every single shared hosting account that is set up on our top-notch cloud platform, so if you decide to host your sites with our company, you shall have full access to this information from the Hepsia CP, which you will get with the account. The CPU load statistics include the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, along with how much system memory they used. You could also see what processes created the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, etcetera. The MySQL load stats section will show you the total amount queries to each particular database that you've created within your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account as a whole and the average hourly rate. Comparing these statistics to the website visitor stats will tell you if your sites perform the way they need to or if they require some optimization, that will improve their efficiency and the overall visitor experience.
