Every time a visitor opens your Internet site, the web browser sends a request to the web server, which executes it and provides the desired information as a response. A standard HTML website uses very little resources for the reason that it's static, but database-driven platforms are more requiring and use far more processing time. Every page that is served creates 2 kinds of load - CPU load, which depends on the length of time the web server spends executing a particular script; and MySQL load, which depends on the total number of database queries created by the script while the user browses the website. Bigger load shall be produced if many people surf a particular Internet site simultaneously or if a lot of database calls are made all at once. 2 illustrations are a discussion board with a huge number of users or an online store where a visitor enters a term within a search box and a large number of items are searched. Having in depth statistics about the load your Internet site generates will allow you to boost the content or see if it is time for you to switch to a more powerful type of website hosting service, if the Internet site is simply getting very popular.
MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Hosting
Using the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all our shared hosting plans, you will be able to see incredibly detailed stats regarding the system resources which your sites use. One of the sections shall give you details about the CPU load, including the amount of processing time the hosting server spent, the time it took for your scripts to be executed and exactly how much memory they used. Statistics are routinely created every six hours and you can also see the different kinds of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, etc. MySQL load data are listed in a separate section where you could see all the queries on a per hour, everyday, and so on. basis. You'll be able to go back and compare statistics from different months to determine if some update has changed the resource usage if the amount of visitors hasn't changed much. That way, you can determine if your Internet site needs to be optimized, that'll lead to a better overall performance and an improved user experience.
