If you have an HTML Internet site, most likely it uses a very small amount of system resources because it's static, but this is not the situation with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and offer far more functions. This sort of sites generate load on the hosting server each time somebody browses them, because the hosting server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the data requested by the visitor's 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 searches for a certain term. If a lot of people access the forum concurrently, or if each and every search involves checking a large number of database entries, this could generate high load and affect the overall performance of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can give you data about the site’s efficiency, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to decide if the website has to be optimized or migrated to a new type of hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load in case the Internet site is popular.
