Each time a visitor opens your Internet site, the browser sends a request to the server, which executes it and supplies the desired content as a response. A standard HTML website uses very little resources because it's static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use far more processing time. Each webpage which is served creates two sorts of load - CPU load, which depends on the amount of time the hosting server spends executing a specific script; and MySQL load, which depends on the amount of database queries generated by the script while the client browses the Internet site. Greater load shall be created if loads of people surf a given Internet site simultaneously or if many database calls are made simultaneously. 2 illustrations are a discussion board with thousands of users or an online store in which a client enters a term within a search box and thousands of items are searched. Having comprehensive data about the load that your Internet site generates will allow you to boost the content or see if it's time to switch to a more powerful type of hosting service, if the site is simply getting quite popular.
MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Hosting
Using the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all our shared hosting plans, you shall be able to to see very detailed statistics about the system resources which your sites use. One of the sections will give you details about the CPU load, including the amount of processing time the server spent, how much time it took for your scripts to be executed and the amount of memory they used. Stats are automatically provided every 6 hours and you may also see the different types of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, and so on. MySQL load statistics are listed in a separate section where you can see all the queries on a per hour, daily, etcetera. basis. You'll be able to go back and compare stats from various months to determine if some update has altered the resource usage if the number of visitors hasn't changed much. In this way, you can see if your Internet site needs to be optimized, which will result in a better functionality and an improved user experience.
