Every time a visitor opens your website, the web browser sends a request to the web server, which executes it and provides the required data as a response. A simple HTML website uses very little system resources for the reason that it is static, but database-driven platforms are more requiring and use much more processing time. Every page that's served creates 2 types of load - CPU load, which depends on the time the hosting server spends executing a particular script; and MySQL load, which depends on the amount of database queries produced by the script while the client browses the website. Higher load shall be produced if a lot of people surf a particular website simultaneously or if a considerable amount of database calls are made all at once. 2 good examples are a discussion board with many users or an online store where a visitor enters a term within a search box and thousands of items are searched. Having in depth statistics about the load that your site generates can help you optimize the content or see if it's time to switch to a more powerful sort of hosting service, if the website is simply getting extremely popular.
MySQL & Load Stats in Website Hosting
We create in depth data about the system resource usage of each website hosting account, so if you host your sites on our innovative cloud platform, you'll be able to take a look at the statistics with just a couple of clicks from your Hepsia CP. The data is available in two different sections. The first one will show you the length of time our system spent serving your websites, the total time it took for your scripts to be executed, the amount of memory sites used and what kinds of processes created the load. Statistics are produced every 6 hours. You're able to see daily and month-to-month stats also. In the second section you'll find all the databases you have created within the account and for each of them you shall see the number of per hour and daily queries. The information will give you a detailed picture of the functionality of your websites, especially if you compare it to the daily traffic and visitor stats.
