If you have an HTML site, in all probability it uses a small amount of system resources simply because it is static, but that isn't so with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and offer considerably more functions. Such Internet sites create load on the website hosting server each time anyone browses them, simply because the hosting server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the information requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A widely used discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is created any time a thread is opened or a user searches for a given word. If lots of people access the forum concurrently, or if each search involves checking hundreds of thousands of database entries, this can create high load and affect the performance of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can provide you with info about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to make a decision if the site must be optimized or transferred to a different sort of website hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load in the event that the Internet site is really popular.

Statistics are consistently generated every 6 hours and you may also see the types of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, and so on. MySQL load data are listed inside a separate section where you are able to see all the queries on a per hour, daily, etc. basis.

You can also see the different types of processes which were executed. Statistics are generated every 6 hours, but if necessary, you can also check figures for previous days or months. The MySQL Load section will show you the total amount of database queries each and every day and on an hourly basis, plus the queries to each individual database which you have inside your semi-dedicated account.
