If you have an HTML website, it probably uses a very small amount of resources due to the fact that it is static, but this isn't the case with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and provide you with a lot more capabilities. This kind of sites create load on the hosting server anytime somebody 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 web browser. A well-known discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is created every single time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a given name. If many people access the forum concurrently, or if each search involves checking a large number of database entries, this may create high load and affect the functionality of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can provide info about the site’s performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to determine if the website must be optimized or migrated to another kind of hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load in the event that the site is extremely popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you want to see in depth statistics with regards to the load produced by your sites, it will not take more than several mouse clicks to do this. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all semi-dedicated servers which we offer, has a section focused on the system resource usage and the information there will tell you if your sites perform well and if the load they create corresponds to the number of received site visitors. The CPU load statistics include the script execution time and the time it took for the server to process the requests, and what kinds of processes created the load. The MySQL data shall show you how many times each database was accessed, and everyday and by the hour data for the entire account. With both types of statistics, you'll be able to check the numbers for each of the past days and months, so you could see how the sites perform as the traffic to them increases or after you have applied some update.
