If you have an HTML website, most likely it uses a small amount of system resources because it's static, but that isn't the situation with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and offer considerably more features. Such websites generate load on the hosting server each time anyone browses them, simply because the web server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the data requested by the visitor's web browser. A well known discussion board, for instance, 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 specific term. If many people access the forum all at once, or if each and every search involves checking tens of thousands of database entries, this could produce high load and affect the performance of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can present you with data about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data to decide if the Internet site should be optimized or transferred to a different sort of web hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load in case the website is very popular.
