If you have an HTML website, most likely it uses a really small amount of system resources as it is static, but this isn't the case with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and provide way more features. This type of sites generate load on the website hosting server each and every time someone browses them, since the hosting server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the info requested by the visitor's browser. A well-known discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is produced any time a thread is opened or an end user searches for a particular phrase. If many people connect to the forum concurrently, or if each and every search involves checking a large number of database entries, this could generate high load and affect the overall performance of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can give you information about the site’s performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to decide if the Internet site must be optimized or moved to another type of website hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load if the site is very popular.

The MySQL statistics will show you the number of times each individual database was accessed, and daily and hourly stats for the whole account. With both forms of stats, you are able to check the numbers for each of the past days and months, so you can easily see how sites perform as the traffic to them increases or after you have applied some update.
