If you have an HTML Internet site, it likely uses a really small amount of system resources as it's static, but that isn't the situation with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and provide way more capabilities. Such sites produce load on the hosting server each time someone browses them, simply because the server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the info requested by the visitor's browser. A well-known discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is generated each time a thread is opened or an end user searches for a particular phrase. If lots of people connect to the forum all at once, or if every single search involves checking thousands of database entries, this can produce high load and affect the performance of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can give you information about the site’s functionality, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to decide 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 the event that the site is very popular.

The MySQL stats will show you how many times each database was accessed, and also everyday and by the hour statistics for the entire account. With both kinds of statistics, you are able to check the numbers for each 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.
