If you have an HTML website, in all probability it uses a very small amount of system resources simply because it is static, but this isn't the situation with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and offer you considerably more functions. This sort of sites generate load on the website hosting server every time anyone browses them, due to the fact that the web server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the content requested by the visitor's web browser. A popular discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is produced any time a thread is opened or a user looks for a particular name. If many people access the forum simultaneously, or if every search involves checking hundreds of thousands of database entries, this may produce high load and affect the performance of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can provide data about the site’s efficiency, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to decide if the Internet site should be optimized or migrated to a new type of website hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load in case the site is really popular.
