If you have an HTML site, most likely it uses a really small amount of system resources simply because it is static, but this isn't the situation with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and offer you way more features. This sort of Internet sites produce load on the web hosting server every time anyone browses them, as the server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the info requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A widely used discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is produced any time a thread is opened or a user searches for a certain word. If lots of people connect to the forum at the same time, or if each search involves checking thousands of database entries, this can create high load and affect the functionality of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can provide data about the site’s functionality, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats and see if the Internet site should be optimized or moved to a new type of hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load in the event that the site is very popular.

One of the sections shall give you details about the CPU load, such as the amount of processing time the web server spent, the time it took for your scripts to be executed and the amount of memory they used. Stats are consistently created every six hours and you could also see the different kinds of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, and so on. MySQL load stats are listed in an individual section where you could see all the queries on an hourly, everyday, etcetera. basis. You'll be able to go back and compare stats from different months to find out whether some update has altered the resource usage if the total amount of website visitors has not changed much.

The MySQL stats will show you the number of times every database was accessed, and everyday and by the hour stats for the entire account. With both kinds of stats, you'll be able to check the numbers for any of the past days and months, so you could see how the websites perform as the traffic to them increases or once you've applied some update.
