The CPU load depends on the time period a hosting server spends executing a script every time a visitor opens a page on a given script-driven website. Static HTML websites use barely any CPU time, but it is not the case with the far more sophisticated and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more customers open such a website, the more load shall be produced on the server and if the database is very large, the MySQL server will be loaded also. A good example of what may cause high load is an Internet store with a huge number of products. If it's popular, plenty of people will be exploring it simultaneously and if they search for items, the whole database which contains all the products will also be constantly accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load statistics can provide an idea of how the website is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply just need a more effective web hosting solution - if the website is very popular and the current setup cannot deal with the load.

Our system keeps comprehensive info about the system resource usage of every cloud hosting account that is created on our top-notch cloud platform, so in case you opt to host your websites with us, you'll have full access to this information from the Hepsia Control Panel, which you will get with the account. The CPU load statistics include the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, as well as the amount of system memory they used. You may see what processes produced the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, and so forth. The MySQL load statistics section will show you the total amount queries to each individual database that you've created in your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account as a whole and the standard hourly rate. Comparing these numbers to the site visitor data shall tell you if your websites perform the way they have to or if they need some optimization, that will improve their performance and the overall visitor experience.

The Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all semi-dedicated servers that we offer, features a section dedicated to the system resource usage and the info there will tell you if your websites perform well and if the load they generate corresponds to the amount of received site visitors. The CPU load data include the script execution time and the time it took for the machine to process the requests, plus what kinds of processes generated the load. The MySQL stats shall show you how many times each individual database was accessed, and also everyday and by the hour stats for the entire account. With both kinds of stats, you are able to check the numbers for each of the past days and months, so you can easily see how sites perform as the traffic to them rises or after you have applied some update.
