Every time a visitor opens your website, the web browser sends a request to the hosting server, which in turn executes it and gives the desired data as a response. A basic HTML website uses minimum resources as it's static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use a lot more processing time. Every page that's served creates 2 kinds of load - CPU load, that depends on the length of time the hosting server spends executing a certain script; and MySQL load, which depends on the number of database queries created by the script while the end user browses the website. Greater load shall be produced if a whole lot of people surf a particular site at the same time or if numerous database calls are made simultaneously. 2 illustrations are a discussion board with a large number of users or an online store where a visitor enters a term inside a search box and tens of thousands of items are searched. Having detailed statistics about the load your Internet site generates will allow you to boost the content or see if it is time for you to switch to a more powerful type of hosting service, if the Internet site is simply getting really popular.

One of the sections will give you details about the CPU load, including the amount of processing time the server spent, the length of time it took for your scripts to be executed and the amount of memory they used. Stats are consistently produced every 6 hours and you may also see the types of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, and so forth. MySQL load statistics are listed in an individual 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 stats from various months to see if some update has changed the resource usage if the total amount of visitors has not changed much. That way, you can determine if your website needs to be optimized, that will result in a better overall performance and an improved user experience.
