If you have an HTML website, it likely uses a very small amount of resources due to the fact that it's static, but this is not the situation with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and offer far more functions. Such Internet sites generate load on the web hosting server anytime someone 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 web browser. A famous discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is produced every time a thread is opened or a user looks for a given phrase. If many people access the forum all at once, or if 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 give you information about the site’s performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to determine if the site has to be optimized or migrated to a new type of website hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load in the event that the Internet site is extremely popular.
