Each time a visitor opens your site, the Internet browser sends a request to the server, which in turn executes it and provides the necessary content as a response. A basic HTML website uses minimal resources because it is static, but database-driven platforms are more requiring and use a lot more processing time. Every single page which is served produces two types of load - CPU load, which depends on the amount of time the web server spends executing a particular script; and MySQL load, which depends on the total number of database queries created by the script while the client browses the site. Bigger load shall be created if a lot of people surf a particular site concurrently or if a lot of database calls are made all at once. 2 good examples are a discussion board with tens of thousands of users or an online store in which a customer enters a term in a search box and thousands of items are searched. Having detailed stats about the load your website generates will allow you to boost the content or see if it's the perfect time to switch to a more powerful type of web hosting service, if the site is simply getting very popular.
MySQL & Load Stats in Website Hosting
If you host your sites inside a website hosting account with us, you will have access to in depth CPU and MySQL data that will enable you to keep an eye on their overall performance. You are able to see the data with a number of clicks inside your Hepsia CP. The CPU Load section can tell you the total time frame the web server spent on your scripts and just how much memory was required, and the time it took for the scripts to be executed. The everyday view is the standard one, but you may also see the data from the preceding months. The MySQL Load section offer more details about the amount of queries to every single database that you have set up in the account. Once again, you are able to see per month, daily and hourly stats, that shall give you info that's different from the traffic or the number of visitors you get. This way, you can determine if the sites require some optimization.
