When a visitor opens your website, the web browser sends a request to the web server, which in turn executes it and provides the required content as a response. A basic HTML site uses very little resources as it's static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use much more processing time. Every single page that is served creates two kinds of load - CPU load, which depends on the span of time the web server spends executing a specific script; and MySQL load, which depends on the amount of database queries created by the script while the end user browses the Internet site. Bigger load will be generated if a whole lot of people look through a particular website all at once or if many database calls are made simultaneously. 2 good examples are a discussion board with thousands of users or an online store in which a visitor enters a term inside a search box and a large number of items are searched. Having detailed data about the load your website generates will enable you to boost the content or see if it's time for you to switch to a more powerful type of hosting service, if the Internet site is simply getting very popular.
MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Website Hosting
If you host your websites within a shared website hosting account with our company, you'll have access to in depth CPU and MySQL statistics that will enable you to keep track of their overall performance. You can see the stats with a couple of mouse clicks inside your Hepsia CP. The CPU Load section can tell you the total time frame the server spent on your scripts and how much memory was needed, as well as the time it took for the scripts to be executed. The daily view is the standard one, but you could also see the data from the preceding months. The MySQL Load section offer you additional information about the number of queries to each database that you have set up inside the account. Once again, you can see monthly, day-to-day and hourly stats, which will give you data that is different from the traffic or the number of visitors you get. That way, you can see if the websites require some optimization.
