Each time a visitor opens your website, the Internet browser sends a request to the hosting server, which in turn executes it and gives the required data as a response. A standard HTML website uses minimal system resources as it's static, but database-driven platforms are more requiring and use much more processing time. Every webpage that is served generates 2 sorts of load - CPU load, which depends on the span of time the hosting server spends executing a specific script; and MySQL load, that depends on the number of database queries generated by the script while the client browses the site. Larger load will be generated if many people browse a certain website at the same time or if many database calls are made concurrently. 2 good examples are a discussion board with a large number of users or an online store where a visitor enters a term in a search box and tens of thousands of items are searched. Having comprehensive stats about the load your website generates can help you optimize the content or see if it's time to switch to a more powerful type of website hosting service, if the site is simply getting very popular.

The CPU load statistics feature the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, and what amount of system memory they used. You may see what processes generated the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, and so forth. The MySQL load data section will show you the total amount queries to each particular database which you have created within your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account as a whole and the average hourly rate. Comparing these numbers to the website visitor data will tell you if your websites perform the way they should or if they need some optimization, that will improve their efficiency and the overall website visitor experience.
