You can enable auditing for particular site as steps mentioned in the below link.

https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Configure-audit-settings-for-a-site-collection-c4ee05e1-2ebd-45f1-a254-d2350aa44ae0

For CPU and memory usage, Every site run as different w3wp.exe but all this sites runs on single server . So, one site higher CPU or Memory utilization will affect whole servers performance.

Here is how changes can be audited in SharePoint, you need to enable Audit logging from Central Administration and then configure Site collection audit settings from Site settings and view audit log reports from Site settings, get step-wise instructions here: https://community.spiceworks.com/how_to/126012-how-to-track-changes-on-sharepoint-server-2013

Few things to consider before auditing, the Reporting feature under Site Collection Feature should be activated.

Under Site Actions -> Site Settings -> Site Collection Administration -> Site Collection Features -> Reporting

If you cannot find the Site collection policies option under Site Settings ->Site Collection Administration then you must enable the Library and Folder Based Retention Feature.

Under Site Actions -> Site Settings -> Site Collection Administration -> Site Collection Features -> Library and Folder Based Retention

To start tracking who and when has viewed / downloaded, etc.., the documents, first you have to create a Site Collection Policy as mentioned below.

Site Actions -> Site Settings -> Site Collection Policies

To view the results

Go to Site Actions -> Site Settings - > Site Collection Administration ->Audit log Reports.

Under Custom Reports click on "Run a custom report". However you can use other reports also based on your requirement.

Hope this helps!

From my understanding I need to set this up at the parent Site Collection level both one want to audit access to one site under the site collection
