If you have an HTML website, in all probability it uses a small amount of resources simply because it's static, but that isn't so with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and offer you far more functions. This sort of Internet sites generate load on the website hosting server anytime somebody browses them, 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 in a database, so some load is produced any time a thread is opened or a user searches for a particular name. If a lot of people access the forum concurrently, or if each search involves checking tens of thousands of database entries, this could produce high load and affect the overall performance of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can provide you with data about the site’s efficiency, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data to decide if the website needs to be optimized or moved to a new kind of website hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load if the Internet site is extremely popular.

One of the sections shall give you details about the CPU load, such as the amount of processing time the web server spent, the length of time it took for your scripts to be executed and exactly how much memory they used. Stats are routinely produced every six hours and you can also see the kinds of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, and so on. MySQL load data are listed in a separate section where you are able to see all the queries on an hourly, everyday, and so forth. basis. You could go back and compare data from different months to find out whether some update has altered the resource usage if the total amount of site visitors hasn't changed much.

Statistics are generated every six hours, but if necessary, you may also check statistics for previous days or months. The MySQL Load section shall show you the total number of database queries daily and per hour, plus the queries to each individual database that you have inside your semi-dedicated account.
