If you have an HTML website, in all probability it uses a really small amount of system resources simply because it's static, but that isn't so with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and offer you far more capabilities. This type of websites create load on the website hosting server each and every time somebody browses them, as the server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the info requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A widely used discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is generated each time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a given phrase. If a lot of people access the forum simultaneously, or if each and every search involves checking thousands of database entries, this can produce high load and affect the functionality of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can provide data about the site’s efficiency, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to make a decision if the site should be optimized or transferred to another type of website hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load if the Internet site is very popular.
