Each time a visitor opens your site, the browser sends a request to the web server, which in turn executes it and provides the required data as a response. A simple HTML Internet site uses negligible resources for the reason that it is static, but database-driven platforms are more requiring and use more processing time. Each and every page that's served creates 2 sorts of load - CPU load, that depends on the span of time the server spends executing a certain script; and MySQL load, that depends on the amount of database queries generated by the script while the end user browses the site. Greater load will be generated if a lot of people surf a particular Internet site simultaneously or if a lot of database calls are made all at once. 2 examples are a discussion board with many users or an online store where a visitor enters a term in a search box and tens of thousands of items are searched. Having detailed statistics about the load which your site generates can help you optimize the content or see if it's time to switch to a more powerful kind of hosting service, if the Internet site is simply getting really popular.
MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Hosting
Our system keeps comprehensive info about the system resource usage of each cloud hosting account that's created on our top-notch cloud platform, so in case you decide to host your sites with our company, you'll have full access to this information through the Hepsia Control Panel, which you'll get with the account. The CPU load statistics include the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, and what amount of system memory they used. You could also see what processes generated the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, etcetera. The MySQL load stats section will show you the total amount queries to each individual database which you have created within your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account in general and the standard hourly rate. Comparing these statistics to the site visitor data shall tell you if your Internet sites perform the way they need to or if they require some optimization, that will improve their overall performance and the overall visitor experience.
