When a visitor opens your site, the web browser sends a request to the server, which executes it and provides the required data as a response. A basic HTML Internet site uses minimal system resources for the reason that it's static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use a lot more processing time. Every page that is served generates 2 types of load - CPU load, which depends on the time period the web server spends executing a specific script; and MySQL load, that depends on the number of database queries created by the script while the customer browses the Internet site. Larger load shall be produced if many people surf a particular site all at once or if loads of database calls are made simultaneously. Two examples are a discussion board with thousands of users or an online store in which a client enters a term inside a search box and thousands of items are searched. Having in depth statistics about the load that your website generates can help you improve the content or see if it is time to switch to a more powerful kind of hosting service, if the website is simply getting quite popular.
MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Hosting
Our system keeps comprehensive info about the system resource usage of every single cloud hosting account that is set up on our top-notch cloud platform, so given that you decide to host your sites with us, you shall have full access to this information via the Hepsia Control Panel, which you will get with the account. The CPU load statistics feature the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, plus how much system memory they used. You could also see what processes generated the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, etcetera. The MySQL load data section will show you the amount of queries to each individual database that you have created in your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account overall and the normal hourly rate. Comparing these figures to the site visitor data shall tell you if your websites perform the way they need to or if they require some optimization, that'll improve their efficiency and the overall website visitor experience.
