If you have an HTML website, it likely uses a very small amount of resources as it is static, but that isn't the situation with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and offer you much more features. This kind of Internet sites produce load on the web hosting server each time anyone browses them, simply because the server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the content requested by the visitor's web browser. A widely used discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is produced each time a thread is opened or a user searches for a given word. If a lot of people connect to the forum all at once, or if each and every search involves checking hundreds of thousands of database entries, this could produce high load and affect the performance of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can present you with data about the site’s functionality, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics and see if the Internet site has to be optimized or migrated to another type of website hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load if the site is popular.

The MySQL stats shall show you how many times each individual database was accessed, and also everyday and by the hour data for the whole account. With both kinds of stats, you can check the numbers for every one of the past days and months, so you could see how sites perform as the traffic to them rises or once you've applied some update.
