Every time a visitor opens your site, the web browser sends a request to the hosting server, which executes it and supplies the necessary content as a response. A basic HTML website uses minimum system resources as it is static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use much more processing time. Each webpage that is served generates 2 types of load - CPU load, that depends on the time the hosting server spends executing a specific script; and MySQL load, that depends on the total number of database queries created by the script while the end user browses the website. Higher load shall be generated if a considerable amount of people look through a given site all at once or if loads of database calls are made at the same time. Two good examples are a discussion board with a large number of users or an online store where a visitor enters a term in a search box and tens of thousands of items are searched. Having comprehensive stats about the load your site generates will help you optimize the content or see if it's time for you to switch to a more powerful kind of web hosting service, if the website is simply getting extremely popular.

The CPU load data include the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, plus what amount of system memory they used. You could also see what processes generated the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, etc. The MySQL load stats section will show you the number of queries to each specific database you have created within your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account in general and the typical hourly rate. Comparing these statistics to the visitor data shall tell you if your Internet sites perform the way they ought to or if they require some optimization, which will improve their functionality and the overall site visitor experience.

Once you log in to the Hepsia CP, provided with every account, you can go to the section devoted to the system load. There, you are able to see the processing time our system spent on your scripts, the time it took for the scripts to be actually executed and what types of processes generated the load - cron jobs, PHP pages, Perl scripts, and so on. You may also see the total number of queries to each database in your semi-dedicated account, the total everyday numbers for the account in general, plus the average hourly rate. With both the CPU and the MySQL load stats, you can always go back to past days or months and review the functionality of your Internet sites after some update or after a sizeable boost in the number of your website visitors.
