If you have an HTML website, in all probability it uses a small amount of resources simply because it is static, but that isn't the situation with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and provide you with way more functions. This kind of websites create load on the website hosting server every time someone browses them, simply because the hosting server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the data requested by the visitor's browser. A well known discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is created every time a thread is opened or a user looks for a certain phrase. If a lot of people connect to the forum concurrently, or if every single search involves checking a large number of database entries, this could produce high load and affect the overall performance of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can provide data about the site’s functionality, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics and see if the Internet site should be optimized or moved to a new kind of web hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load in case the site is really popular.
