Whenever a visitor opens your Internet site, the Internet browser sends a request to the hosting server, which executes it and provides the required content as a response. A simple HTML website uses very little resources for the reason that it's static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use a lot more processing time. Each page which is served produces 2 sorts of load - CPU load, which depends on the span of time the hosting server spends executing a specific script; and MySQL load, which depends on the number of database queries produced by the script while the end user browses the site. Higher load shall be produced if many people browse a certain website simultaneously or if many database calls are made simultaneously. Two illustrations are a discussion board with a huge number of users or an online store in which a client enters a term in a search box and tens of thousands of items are searched. Having comprehensive statistics about the load that your website generates will allow you to boost the content or see if it is the perfect time to switch to a more powerful sort of hosting service, if the site is simply getting very popular.

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, included with all semi-dedicated servers we offer, features a section devoted to the system resource usage and the info there shall tell you if your sites function properly and if the load they create corresponds to the amount of received website visitors. The CPU load statistics include the script execution time and the time it took for the web server to process the requests, and also what sorts of processes created the load. The MySQL statistics will show you how many times every single database was accessed, and also daily and hourly stats for the whole account. With both sorts of stats, you can check the numbers for any of the past days and months, so you can see how the websites perform as the traffic to them increases or once you've applied some update.
