If you have an HTML site, most likely it uses a very small amount of resources simply because it is static, but that isn't the situation with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and offer you far more capabilities. Such websites produce load on the hosting server anytime anyone browses them, due to the fact that the hosting server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the information requested by the visitor's browser. A well-known discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is generated every single time a thread is opened or a user looks for a certain phrase. If lots of people connect to the forum concurrently, or if each search involves checking a large number of database entries, this can generate high load and affect the overall performance of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can present you with data about the site’s performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to determine if the site must be optimized or transferred to a new type of website hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load if the Internet site is really popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you need to see thorough statistics with regards to the load produced by your websites, it will not take more than just a few mouse clicks to do this. The Hepsia hosting CP, supplied with all semi-dedicated servers which we offer, features a section dedicated to the system resource usage and the information there shall tell you if your websites operate properly and if the load they create corresponds to the amount of received site visitors. The CPU load statistics include the script execution time and how much time it took for the machine to process the requests, plus what kinds of processes produced the load. The MySQL stats will show you how often every database was accessed, plus everyday and per hour data for the whole account. With both kinds of statistics, you can check the numbers for each of the past days and months, so you can see how the websites perform as the traffic to them rises or once you've applied some update.
