If you have an HTML website, it likely uses a small amount of resources simply because it is static, but this isn't the situation with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and provide you with way more functions. This kind of websites generate load on the web hosting server each and every time anyone browses them, because the hosting server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the data requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A popular discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is generated any time a thread is opened or an end user searches for a specific name. If lots of people access the forum simultaneously, or if every search involves checking tens of thousands of database entries, this may generate high load and affect the overall performance of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can give you info about the site’s performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data and see if the website has to be optimized or transferred to another kind of website hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load if the site is extremely popular.

You are able to see the stats with a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia CP. The CPU Load section will reveal to you the total time the hosting server spent on your scripts and what amount of memory was required, as well as the time it took for the scripts to be executed. The daily view is the standard one, but you can also see the data from the previous months. The MySQL Load section offer you additional information about the amount of queries to each and every database that you have created within the account. Once again, you are able to see month-to-month, daily and hourly stats, that will give you info that's different from the traffic or the number of visitors that you get. That way, you can identify if the websites require some optimization.
