The CPU load is dependent upon the length of time a hosting server spends executing a script when a visitor opens a page on a specific script-driven site. Static HTML websites use barely any CPU time, but it's not so with the much more advanced and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more customers open such a website, the more load shall be generated on the server and if the database is large, the MySQL server will be loaded too. A good example of what can cause high load is an Internet store with a large number of products. If it is popular, many people will be visiting it at the same time and if they search for items, the entire database which contains all of the products will also be frequently accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load data can provide an idea of how the website is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply need a more effective hosting solution - if the website is extremely popular and the established setup can't handle the load.

The everyday view is the default one, but you can also see the numbers from the past months. The MySQL Load section offer more info about the number of queries to every single database that you have created inside the account. Once again, you can see per month, daily and per hour data, that will give you information that is different from the traffic or the number of visitors which you get.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, supplied with all semi-dedicated servers we offer, features a section focused on the system resource usage and the info there shall tell you if your websites perform well and if the load they produce corresponds to the amount of received website visitors. The CPU load statistics include the script execution time and the amount of time it took for the machine to process the requests, and also what kinds of processes generated the load. The MySQL stats will show you how often each database was accessed, and also everyday and by the hour data for the whole account. With both sorts of stats, you can check the numbers for each 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.
