If you have an HTML site, most likely it uses a really small amount of system resources due to the fact that it's static, but this isn't so with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and offer you a lot more capabilities. This type of websites create load on the website hosting server each time somebody browses them, since the web server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the data requested by the visitor's browser. A well known discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is produced each time a thread is opened or a user searches for a particular phrase. If many people access the forum concurrently, or if each and every search involves checking hundreds of thousands of database entries, this may produce high load and affect the performance of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can give you information about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data and see if the Internet site must be optimized or migrated to a new sort of website hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load if the website is really popular.

The Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all semi-dedicated servers which we offer, features a section devoted to the system resource usage and the data there will tell you if your websites operate properly and if the load they produce corresponds to the number of received visitors. The CPU load data include the script execution time and the time it took for the hosting server to process the requests, and also what types of processes generated the load. The MySQL data shall show you how frequently each individual database was accessed, as well as daily and hourly statistics for the whole account. With both kinds of statistics, you'll be able to check the numbers for every one of the past days and months, so you can see how the sites perform as the traffic to them increases or after you have applied some update.
