If you have an HTML Internet site, it probably uses a really small amount of resources as it is static, but this is not the case with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and provide you with way more functions. Such websites generate load on the website hosting server every time someone browses them, simply because the hosting server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the content requested by the visitor's browser. A popular discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is produced any time a thread is opened or an end user searches for a particular phrase. If many people access the forum all at once, or if every single search involves checking thousands of database entries, this could create high load and affect the performance of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can present you with info about the site’s functionality, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to make a decision if the Internet site has to be optimized or moved to another type of website hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load in case the site is extremely popular.

The MySQL data shall show you how often each database was accessed, as well as everyday and per hour stats for the whole account. With both sorts of statistics, you'll be able to check the numbers for every one of the past days and months, so you could see how the sites perform as the traffic to them increases or after you have applied some update.
