When a visitor opens your site, the browser sends a request to the hosting server, which executes it and supplies the necessary data as a response. A standard HTML site uses minimal resources because it's static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use much more processing time. Each and every page that is served produces two types of load - CPU load, that depends on the length of time the server spends executing a particular script; and MySQL load, which depends on the number of database queries created by the script while the client browses the site. Greater load shall be created if many people surf a given website concurrently or if a lot of database calls are made at the same time. Two 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 thousands of items are searched. Having comprehensive stats about the load that your Internet site generates will help you boost the content or see if it's time for you to switch to a more powerful kind of hosting service, if the website is simply getting very popular.

The MySQL load stats section will show you the amount of queries to each particular database you have created in your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account as a whole and the standard hourly rate. Comparing these statistics to the visitor stats will tell you if your websites perform the way they ought to or if they require some optimization, that will improve their overall performance and the overall visitor experience.

The MySQL statistics shall show you how frequently every database was accessed, and also day-to-day and hourly statistics for the entire account. With both forms of stats, you can check the numbers for every one of the past days and months, so you can see how sites perform as the traffic to them rises or after you have applied some update.
