Every time a visitor opens your Internet site, the Internet browser sends a request to the web server, which executes it and provides the necessary information as a response. A simple HTML Internet site uses minimal system resources because it's static, but database-driven platforms are more requiring and use a lot more processing time. Every webpage which is served creates two forms of load - CPU load, that depends on the time period the hosting server spends executing a certain script; and MySQL load, that depends on the total number of database queries generated by the script while the user browses the site. Bigger load shall be created if many people surf a given Internet site at the same time or if a lot of database calls are made simultaneously. 2 examples are a discussion board with tens of thousands of users or an online store in which a customer enters a term inside a search box and thousands of items are searched. Having thorough stats about the load which your Internet site generates can help you optimize the content or see if it is time to switch to a more powerful type of hosting service, if the Internet site is simply getting extremely popular.
MySQL & Load Stats in Website Hosting
If you host your websites within a website hosting account with us, you will have access to thorough CPU and MySQL stats which will allow you to keep tabs on their performance. You could see the stats with a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The CPU Load section will reveal to you the total time period the hosting server spent on your scripts and what amount of memory was required, plus the time it took for the scripts to be executed. The everyday view is the default one, but you could also see the stats from the past months. The MySQL Load section will provide you with more details about the number of queries to each database that you have set up inside the account. Once again, you are able to see monthly, day-to-day and per hour data, that will give you data that is different from the traffic or the number of visitors that you get. Thus, you can see if the Internet sites need some optimization.
