Entry points:

Entry points are the number of processes used to serve actual website content.

CPU cores:

A CPU (Central Processing Unit) core is a part of the main CPU chip. In today’s world, CPU chips have multiple cores. These cores allow them to process multiple requests at a time.

MySQL usage:

MySQL is an open-source Relational Database Management System (RDBMS) that uses Structured Query Language (SQL). SQL is the most popular language for adding, accessing and managing content in a database.


In a Unix-style file system, the inode is a data structure that represents a filesystem object, including a file or a directory. Each inode stores the attributes and disk block location(s) of the filesystem object’s data.

Cron job:

The software utility Cron is a time-based job scheduler in Unix-like computer operating systems. People who set up and maintain software environments use cron to schedule jobs (commands or shell scripts) to run periodically at fixed times, dates, or intervals.
