The CPU load depends upon the time period a web server spends executing a script each time a visitor opens a page on a given script-driven Internet site. Static HTML websites use hardly any CPU time, but it's not so with the far more complex and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more individuals open this sort of a site, the more load shall be produced on the hosting server and if the database is large, the MySQL server shall be loaded as well. An illustration of what may cause high load is a web-based store with a huge number of products. If it's popular, lots of people shall be visiting it all at once and if they seek out items, the whole database which contains all of the products will also be continuously accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load statistics will give you an idea of how the site is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply need a more potent hosting solution - if the site is really popular and the current setup cannot handle the load.

Using the Hepsia CP, bundled with all our cloud web hosting offers, you'll be able to see rather detailed stats regarding the system resources that your Internet sites use. One of the sections will give you info on the CPU load, such as the amount of processing time the web server spent, the span of time it took for your scripts to be executed and exactly how much memory they used. Stats are automatically generated every 6 hours and you could also see the kinds of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, etc. MySQL load stats are listed within an individual section in which you'll be able to see all the queries on an hourly, everyday, and so on. basis. You'll be able to go back and compare stats from different months to find out if some update has transformed the resource usage if the total amount of website visitors hasn't changed much. Thus, you can determine if your Internet site needs to be optimized, that'll contribute to a better functionality and an improved user experience.
