If you have an HTML website, in all probability it uses a very small amount of resources simply because it is static, but that isn't so with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and offer considerably more capabilities. Such sites generate load on the hosting server every time anyone browses them, due to the fact that the server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the data requested by the visitor's browser. A popular discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is produced each time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a certain word. If a lot of people connect to the forum at the same time, or if each and every search involves checking hundreds of thousands of database entries, this could create high load and affect the performance of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can give you info about the site’s efficiency, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data to determine if the Internet site must be optimized or moved to a different sort of web hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load if the Internet site is popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Hosting

Our system keeps comprehensive information about the system resource usage of each and every shared hosting account which is set up on our top-notch cloud platform, so if you decide to host your websites with us, you will have full access to this information via the Hepsia Control Panel, which you shall get with the account. The CPU load stats include the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, and how much system memory they used. You may see what processes generated the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, and so forth. The MySQL load stats section will show you the number of queries to each specific database which you have created in your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account in general and the typical hourly rate. Comparing these statistics to the website visitor statistics will tell you if your sites perform the way they need to or if they need some optimization, that'll improve their functionality and the overall site visitor experience.
