If you have an HTML website, most likely it uses a really small amount of system resources as it's static, but that isn't the case with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and offer you considerably more features. Such sites generate load on the website hosting server each and every time anyone browses them, due to the fact that the server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the content requested by the visitor's browser. A well-known discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is generated every single time a thread is opened or a user searches for a given phrase. If a lot of people connect to the forum at the same time, or if every single search involves checking hundreds of thousands of database entries, this may generate high load and affect the functionality of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can provide you with data about the site’s performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to determine if the website must be optimized or migrated to a new kind of web hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load in case the Internet site is very popular.
