In phpmyadmin you can look at "status". This has a bunch of statistics for the mysql process.
My question is: Are these statistics for everyone on the shared box or are these solely for my users databases?
You can either have site5 do it for you: http://kb.site5.com/control/backstage/backstage-how-to-install-google-apps/
Or you just need to change the MX records for your domain.

The priority and destination values on the right side of the table are the ones you want.
Note: Some of the instructions on that page seem to be lost off the side of the page. The comments are helpful.
login to http://backstage.site5.com. You will then see your account info. To access cPanel, click the “Site Admin” dropdown at the top right and choose the site you would like to access.
NOTE: This for the shared hosting plans..
Assuming Site5 has already enabled ssh for you, you can access it in two ways.
If you login to your backstage, it will list what server you are on under “server status”. You would then use ssh like:
or if you have a domain setup with site5 then you can simply ssh as normal:
Hope this helps,
