If you have an HTML website, most likely it uses a very small amount of system resources because it is static, but this is not the case with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and provide a lot more functions. Such Internet sites produce load on the website hosting server every time anyone browses them, simply because the web server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the information requested by the visitor's web browser. A well known discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is generated each time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a given name. If lots of people connect to the forum all at once, or if every single search involves checking thousands of database entries, this can produce high load and affect the functionality of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can give you information about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to decide if the website must be optimized or transferred to another kind of hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load in the event that the Internet site is popular.

Our system keeps detailed info about the system resource usage of every website hosting account that's set up on our top-notch cloud platform, so given that you opt to host your websites with our company, you will have full access to this information from the Hepsia Control Panel, which you'll get with the account. The CPU load stats include the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, plus how much system memory they used. You could also see what processes created the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, etc. The MySQL load data section will show you the number of queries to each specific database that you have created inside your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account overall and the normal hourly rate. Comparing these figures to the site visitor statistics will tell you if your sites perform the way they need to or if they need some optimization, that'll improve their performance and the overall visitor experience.

The MySQL Load section shall show you the total number of database queries each day and per hour, and also the queries to each individual database you have inside your semi-dedicated account.
