If you have an HTML site, it likely uses a very small amount of resources simply because it is static, but this is not the situation with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and provide much more capabilities. Such websites generate load on the website hosting server every time anyone browses them, due to the fact that the server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the information requested by the visitor's web browser. A well known discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is generated every time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a particular phrase. If many people connect to the forum concurrently, or if each and every search involves checking hundreds of thousands of database entries, this may create high load and affect the functionality of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can present you with information about the site’s functionality, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to determine if the Internet site must be optimized or moved to a new kind of website hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load in case the website is really popular.

MySQL load data are listed inside a separate section in which you are able to see all the queries on an hourly, daily, and so on. basis.
