If you have an HTML site, it likely uses a really small amount of resources because it's static, but this is not so with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and provide you with way more features. This type of websites generate load on the website hosting server anytime somebody browses them, as the server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the content requested by the visitor's web browser. A widely used 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 looks for a particular term. If lots of people connect to the forum concurrently, or if every single search involves checking hundreds of thousands of database entries, this can generate high load and affect the overall performance of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can present you with information about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics and see if the site must be optimized or migrated to a different kind of website hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load if the site is really popular.

With both the CPU and the MySQL load stats, you could always go back to past days or months and examine the performance of your websites after some update or after a considerable rise in the number of your visitors.
