If you have an HTML site, in all probability it uses a small amount of resources as it is static, but this isn't the situation with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and offer you far more capabilities. This kind of Internet sites produce load on the hosting server each time anyone browses them, since the server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the content requested by the visitor's browser. A popular discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is created each time a thread is opened or a user searches for a specific name. If lots of people access the forum all at once, or if every single search involves checking tens of thousands of database entries, this may generate high load and affect the functionality of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can provide you with data about the site’s performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to determine if the website has to be optimized or migrated to a new kind of hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load in the event that the site is extremely popular.

Using the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all our shared hosting packages, you will be able to see rather comprehensive data regarding the resources your Internet sites use. One of the sections will give you information regarding the CPU load, such as the amount of processing time the hosting server spent, the span of time it took for your scripts to be executed and how much memory they used. Statistics are consistently generated every 6 hours and you could also see the kinds of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, and so forth. MySQL load data are listed within an individual section where you are able to see all the queries on an hourly, daily, etc. basis. You could go back and compare stats from various months to find out if some update has transformed the resource usage if the total amount of website visitors hasn't changed much. This way, you will see if your website needs to be optimized, which will contribute to a better functionality and an improved user experience.

If you want to see in depth stats for the load generated by your sites, it won't take more than just a few clicks to do this. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all semi-dedicated servers we offer, has a section dedicated to the system resource usage and the info there will tell you if your Internet sites operate properly and if the load they generate corresponds to the number of received visitors. The CPU load data include the script execution time and how much time it took for the hosting server to process the requests, plus what kinds of processes created the load. The MySQL stats will show you how many times every database was accessed, as well as daily and per hour statistics for the whole account. With both forms of statistics, you are able to check the numbers for every one of the past days and months, so you could see how sites perform as the traffic to them rises or after you have applied some update.
