If you have an HTML site, in all probability it uses a small amount of resources because it is static, but this isn't so with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and provide a lot more capabilities. This kind of sites create load on the website hosting server when somebody browses them, since the server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the content requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A widely used discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is generated every time a thread is opened or an end user searches for a given name. If many people connect to the forum concurrently, or if every single search involves checking thousands of database entries, this may create high load and affect the performance of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can provide information about the site’s functionality, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to decide if the site needs to be optimized or moved to a new type of web hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load in case the website is really popular.
