Whenever a visitor opens your site, the web browser sends a request to the web server, which executes it and supplies the desired information as a response. A simple HTML Internet site uses very little system resources because it's static, but database-driven platforms are more requiring and use a lot more processing time. Every page which is served produces two kinds of load - CPU load, which depends on the amount of time the web server spends executing a certain script; and MySQL load, which depends on the number of database queries created by the script while the customer browses the site. Larger load shall be generated if a whole lot of people browse a particular website all at once or if loads of database calls are made simultaneously. Two examples are a discussion board with a huge number of users or an online store in which a client enters a term inside a search box and tens of thousands of items are searched. Having in depth stats about the load that your site generates can help you boost the content or see if it is the perfect time to switch to a more powerful type of website hosting service, if the site is simply getting very popular.

Our system keeps detailed info about the system resource usage of each shared hosting account that is created on our top-notch cloud platform, so given that you decide to host your sites with our company, you will have full access to this data from the Hepsia CP, which you will get with the account. The CPU load data include the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, and the amount of system memory they used. You may see what processes generated the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, and so forth. The MySQL load stats section will show you the total amount queries to each individual database you have created within your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account as a whole and the standard hourly rate. Comparing these statistics to the site visitor statistics will tell you if your Internet sites perform the way they need to or if they need some optimization, which will improve their efficiency and the overall website visitor experience.
