If you have an HTML site, it probably uses a small amount of resources because it's static, but that isn't the case with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and provide a lot more functions. Such Internet sites generate load on the hosting server when somebody browses them, as the server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the info requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A well-known discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is created each time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a particular phrase. If a lot of people access the forum at the same time, or if every search involves checking tens of thousands of database entries, this could generate high load and affect the functionality of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can present you with data about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to determine if the site has to be optimized or moved to a new type of hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load if the site is very popular.
