The CPU load depends upon the time a hosting server spends executing a script any time a visitor opens a webpage on a particular script-driven site. Static HTML sites use hardly any CPU time, but this isn't the case with the far more advanced and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more customers open this sort of a website, the more load will be created on the web server and if the database is very large, the MySQL server will be loaded also. A good example of what may cause high load is a web-based store with tens of thousands of products. If it is popular, a lot of people will be visiting it simultaneously and if they look for items, the whole database that contains all of the products will also be frequently accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load statistics will give you an idea of how the Internet site is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you simply need a more effective website hosting solution - if the Internet site is really popular and the existing setup can't handle the load.

Stats are automatically provided every six hours and you could also see the types of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, etc. MySQL load statistics are listed inside a different section where you'll be able to see all the queries on a per hour, day-to-day, etc. basis. You could go back and compare stats from different months to see if some update has changed the resource usage if the amount of website visitors hasn't changed much.

The MySQL stats shall show you how many times each individual database was accessed, and everyday and by the hour statistics for the whole account. With both kinds of statistics, you can check the numbers for any of the past days and months, so you can easily see how the sites perform as the traffic to them grows or after you have applied some update.
