If you have an HTML website, most likely it uses a very small amount of system resources because it's static, but that isn't the case with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and offer a lot more capabilities. Such sites create load on the web hosting server each time someone browses them, as the server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the content requested by the visitor's web browser. A widely used discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is created each time a thread is opened or an end user searches for a particular name. If many people connect to the forum at the same time, or if every single search involves checking tens of thousands of database entries, this may create high load and affect the overall performance of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can give you info about the site’s efficiency, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data to decide if the site has to be optimized or moved to a different type of web hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load if the Internet site is popular.
