The CPU load depends on the time period a web server spends executing a script each time a visitor opens a webpage on a specific script-driven website. Static HTML Internet sites use hardly any CPU time, but it's not the situation with the significantly more advanced and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more clients open this kind of an Internet site, the more load will be generated on the web server and if the database is very large, the MySQL server shall be loaded as well. An illustration of what could cause high load is an online store with a large number of products. If it's popular, many people shall be browsing it all at once and if they look for items, the whole database which contains all of the products shall also be constantly accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load stats will give you an idea of how the site is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you just need a more powerful web hosting solution - if the site is extremely popular and the existing setup can't cope with the load.

One of the sections will give you info on the CPU load, like how much processing time the server spent, the length of time it took for your scripts to be executed and what amount of memory they used. Statistics are automatically produced every 6 hours and you could also see the types of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, and so forth. MySQL load statistics are listed inside a different section in which you are able to see all the queries on a per hour, everyday, and so on. basis. You could go back and compare data from different months to determine if some update has transformed the resource usage if the total amount of site visitors hasn't changed much.

that we offer, features a section dedicated to the system resource usage and the information there can tell you if your Internet sites function properly and if the load they produce corresponds to the amount of received website visitors. The CPU load stats include the script execution time and the length of time it took for the machine to process the requests, and also what types of processes produced the load. The MySQL data will show you how often each individual database was accessed, as well as daily and per hour statistics for the whole account. With both sorts of stats, you can check the numbers for every one of the past days and months, so you could see how the websites perform as the traffic to them grows or after you have applied some update.
