If you have an HTML site, in all probability it uses a very small amount of system resources due to the fact that it's static, but this is not the case with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and offer much more capabilities. This kind of websites produce load on the web hosting server each and every time somebody browses them, since the server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the content requested by the visitor's web browser. A famous discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is created every single time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a particular word. If a lot of people connect to the forum concurrently, or if every search involves checking thousands of database entries, this could produce high load and affect the performance of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can give you data about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data to determine if the website must be optimized or moved to a new type of web hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load if the Internet site is very popular.
