Each time a visitor opens your website, the Internet browser sends a request to the server, which in turn executes it and supplies the required content as a response. A simple HTML website uses negligible resources due to the fact that it's static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use more processing time. Every page that is served creates two sorts of load - CPU load, that depends on the span of time the hosting server spends executing a particular script; and MySQL load, that depends on the number of database queries created by the script while the end user browses the Internet site. Larger load shall be produced if a lot of people look through a particular website simultaneously or if many database calls are made simultaneously. 2 illustrations are a discussion board with a large number of users or an online store in which a customer enters a term inside a search box and thousands of items are searched. Having thorough stats about the load which your site generates will enable you to optimize the content or see if it's time for you to switch to a more powerful sort of hosting service, if the website is simply getting very popular.
MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Website Hosting
Using the Hepsia Control Panel, bundled with all of our cloud website hosting offers, you will be able to see incredibly detailed data about the resources your Internet sites use. One of the sections will give you information about the CPU load, like how much processing time the hosting server spent, the length of time it took for your scripts to be executed and how much memory they used. Statistics are automatically generated every 6 hours and you could also see the kinds of processes that generated 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 an hourly, daily, etcetera. basis. You'll be able to go back and compare statistics from various months to find out if some update has altered the resource usage if the total amount of visitors hasn't changed much. That way, you can see if your website needs to be optimized, that'll lead to a better functionality and an improved user experience.
