If you are running a MySQL database on your Dedicated Hosting server, you may want to see its status in terms of the processes that it is currently running. This will give you an idea of the load on the database server which is important if you have a large database or several databases being served on on your server. It is also useful to help pinpoint problems with queries running on the server.

You will need to have root access to the server in order to use either of these reports.
