Whenever a visitor opens your site, the web browser sends a request to the web server, which in turn executes it and provides the desired information as a response. A basic HTML site uses very little resources due to the fact that it's static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use more processing time. Each page which is served generates two sorts of load - CPU load, which depends on the span of time the server spends executing a specific script; and MySQL load, which depends on the amount of database queries created by the script while the end user browses the website. Larger load shall be generated if loads of people look through a certain site simultaneously or if numerous 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 within a search box and a large number of items are searched. Having in depth stats about the load which your website generates will help you improve the content or see if it is the perfect time to switch to a more powerful sort of website hosting service, if the site is simply getting really popular.
MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Web Hosting

The CPU load statistics feature the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, along with how much system memory they used. You can also see what processes generated the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, and so on. The MySQL load data section will show you the number of queries to each individual database that you've created in your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account altogether and the typical hourly rate. Comparing these numbers to the site visitor statistics shall tell you if your websites perform the way they ought to or if they require some optimization, that'll improve their efficiency and the overall website visitor experience.
