If you have an HTML Internet site, in all probability it uses a really small amount of system resources simply because it is static, but this is not so with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and offer you way more features. Such websites generate load on the hosting server each and every time anyone browses them, as the hosting server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the information requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A well known discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is produced every time a thread is opened or an end user searches for a particular term. If a lot of people access the forum concurrently, or if each and every search involves checking tens of thousands of database entries, this can produce high load and affect the functionality of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can provide you with information about the site’s functionality, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to determine if the website should be optimized or migrated to a different type of hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load if the Internet site is popular.

The MySQL load data section will show you the amount of queries to each individual database which you have created in your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account altogether and the standard hourly rate. Comparing these figures to the site visitor stats shall tell you if your sites perform the way they ought to or if they require some optimization, that will improve their functionality and the overall site visitor experience.
