If you have an HTML Internet site, in all probability it uses a small amount of system resources as it is static, but this isn't the case with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and offer way more functions. Such Internet sites generate load on the website hosting server when somebody browses them, due to the fact that the web server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the content requested by the visitor's web browser. A famous discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is generated each time a thread is opened or a user searches for a certain name. If a lot of people access the forum simultaneously, or if every search involves checking hundreds of thousands of database entries, this can produce high load and affect the overall performance of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can provide you with information about the site’s efficiency, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics and see if the website should be optimized or migrated to another kind of hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load if the Internet site is really popular.

The MySQL Load section shall show you the total number of database queries per day and each hour, as well as the queries to each individual database you have inside your semi-dedicated account.
