If you have an HTML site, it likely uses a really small amount of resources simply because it's static, but that isn't the situation with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and provide much more features. This type of websites create load on the website hosting server each time someone browses them, due to the fact that the hosting server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the content requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A well-known discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is produced every time a thread is opened or a user searches for a given term. If a lot of people access the forum concurrently, or if each search involves checking a large number of database entries, this may generate high load and affect the functionality of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can provide data about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to determine if the Internet site should be optimized or moved to a different sort of hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load in case the Internet site is really popular.
