Each time a visitor opens your site, the browser sends a request to the hosting server, which in turn executes it and provides the required content as a response. A standard HTML Internet site uses negligible system resources because it is static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use more processing time. Each webpage that's served creates 2 kinds of load - CPU load, that depends on the amount of time the hosting server spends executing a particular script; and MySQL load, which depends on the amount of database queries generated by the script while the customer browses the website. Greater load shall be generated if loads of people browse a particular site simultaneously or if a considerable amount of database calls are made concurrently. Two examples are a discussion board with a huge number of users or an online store in which a client enters a term in a search box and thousands of items are searched. Having comprehensive data about the load that your site generates will help you improve the content or see if it's time for you to switch to a more powerful type of web hosting service, if the site is simply getting extremely popular.

The MySQL stats will show you how frequently each database was accessed, as well as day-to-day and hourly data for the whole account. With both sorts of statistics, you'll be able to check the numbers for each of the past days and months, so you can easily see how the sites perform as the traffic to them rises or once you've applied some update.
