If you have an HTML site, in all probability it uses a small amount of resources due to the fact that it's static, but that isn't the situation with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and offer a lot more functions. This type of websites generate load on the website hosting server when somebody browses them, since the server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the content requested by the visitor's browser. A famous discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is created every single time a thread is opened or an end user searches for a given term. If a lot of people access the forum simultaneously, or if every single search involves checking hundreds of thousands of database entries, this could create high load and affect the functionality of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can provide you with information about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data to determine if the site needs to be optimized or transferred to another sort of web hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load in case the Internet site is very popular.
