The CPU load depends upon the length of time a server spends executing a script whenever a visitor opens a page on a certain script-driven site. Static HTML Internet sites use barely any CPU time, but this isn't so with the significantly more advanced and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more individuals open such a website, the more load will be generated on the hosting server and if the database is very large, the MySQL server shall be loaded as well. A good example of what can cause high load is an online store with a large number of products. If it's popular, lots of people shall be browsing it all at once and if they search for items, the whole database containing all of the products shall also be constantly accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load data can provide an idea of how the site is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you just need a more efficient hosting solution - if the site is very popular and the established setup can't deal with the load.

MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Hosting

If you host your websites within a cloud hosting account with us, you'll have access to in depth CPU and MySQL statistics which will allow you to keep track of their functionality. You can see the stats with a few mouse clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The CPU Load section can tell you the total time the hosting server spent on your scripts and how much memory was required, and the time it took for the scripts to be executed. The daily view is the standard one, but you may also see the numbers from the previous months. The MySQL Load section give you more info about the total amount of queries to every database that you have set up within the account. Once again, you can easily see per month, day-to-day and per hour data, that will give you information that is different from the traffic or the number of visitors you get. Thus, you can determine if the Internet sites require some optimization.
