If you have an HTML site, most likely it uses a really small amount of resources because it's static, but this isn't so with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and provide you with considerably more functions. This sort of sites produce load on the web hosting server every time somebody browses them, because the hosting server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the info requested by the visitor's browser. A popular discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is created every time a thread is opened or an end user searches for a given name. If lots of people connect to the forum at the same time, or if every single search involves checking thousands of database entries, this may generate high load and affect the overall performance of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can present you with information about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to make a decision if the site has to be optimized or moved to another kind of hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load if the site is very popular.
