Every time a visitor opens your Internet site, the browser sends a request to the hosting server, which in turn executes it and provides the required content as a response. A standard HTML website uses minimum system resources for the reason that it's static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use much more processing time. Each webpage that's served generates two forms of load - CPU load, which depends on the span of time the hosting server spends executing a certain script; and MySQL load, that depends on the number of database queries generated by the script while the client browses the Internet site. Higher load will be generated if a considerable amount of people look through a given site all at once or if many database calls are made simultaneously. 2 examples are a discussion board with thousands of users or an online store in which a customer enters a term in a search box and tens of thousands of items are searched. Having detailed stats about the load that your website generates will enable you to improve the content or see if it's time to switch to a more powerful sort of hosting service, if the site is simply getting really popular.
MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Website Hosting
Our system keeps detailed info about the system resource usage of each cloud website hosting account which is set up on our top-notch cloud platform, so in case you choose to host your Internet sites with us, you'll have full access to this data through the Hepsia CP, which you'll get with the account. The CPU load data include the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, as well as what amount of system memory they used. You could also see what processes created the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, and so on. The MySQL load data section will show you the amount of queries to each specific database which you have created within your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account overall and the standard hourly rate. Comparing these numbers to the site visitor stats will tell you if your websites perform the way they have to or if they need some optimization, that will improve their functionality and the overall visitor experience.
