If you have an HTML website, most likely it uses a very small amount of system resources as it's static, but this isn't the case with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and offer you a lot more features. Such sites create load on the hosting server anytime anyone browses them, since the hosting server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the content requested by the visitor's browser. A well-known discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is produced every single time a thread is opened or a user looks for a certain phrase. If lots of people access the forum all at once, or if each and every search involves checking thousands of database entries, this can generate high load and affect the performance of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can give you data about the site’s efficiency, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats and see if the Internet site must be optimized or transferred to another type of hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load if the Internet site is really popular.

The daily view is the default one, but you could also see the statistics from the previous months. The MySQL Load section offer more info about the number of queries to each and every database that you have created in the account. Once again, you can see per month, daily and hourly stats, that will give you data that's different from the traffic or the number of visitors that you get.

Statistics are generated every six hours, but if necessary, you could also check data for previous days or months. The MySQL Load section will show you the whole number of database queries per day and per hour, and also the queries to each individual database that you have inside your semi-dedicated account. Comparing this data to your traffic statistics shall give you useful information about how your websites perform and you will see if you need to take some measures to enhance them.
