Every time a visitor opens your website, the Internet browser sends a request to the web server, which executes it and gives the required information as a response. A basic HTML Internet site uses minimal system resources due to the fact that it is static, but database-driven platforms are more requiring and use much more processing time. Every webpage that is served generates 2 sorts of load - CPU load, which depends on the time period the hosting server spends executing a specific script; and MySQL load, that depends on the number of database queries created by the script while the end user browses the website. Larger load shall be generated if a lot of people browse a given Internet site at the same time or if a considerable amount of database calls are made concurrently. Two good examples are a discussion board with a huge number of users or an online store in which a client enters a term in a search box and a large number of items are searched. Having thorough statistics about the load your website generates will enable you to boost the content or see if it's time to switch to a more powerful kind of website hosting service, if the Internet site is simply getting really popular.
MySQL & Load Stats in Hosting
If you host your websites in a hosting account with our company, you will have access to in depth CPU and MySQL stats which will allow you to monitor their operation. You can easily see the stats with a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The CPU Load section will show you the total time frame the hosting server spent on your scripts and how much memory was required, along with the time it took for the scripts to be executed. The daily view is the default one, but you are able to also see the data from the preceding months. The MySQL Load section give you more details about the total amount of queries to each database that you have created inside the account. Once again, you are able to see monthly, daily and hourly stats, that'll give you information that's different from the traffic or the number of visitors that you get. Thus, you can see if the sites require some optimization.
