If you have an HTML website, it probably uses a really small amount of resources due to the fact that it is static, but that isn't the situation with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and provide you with much more features. This type of websites generate load on the web hosting server anytime somebody browses them, since the web 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 within a database, so some load is produced each time a thread is opened or a user searches for a certain name. If many people access the forum concurrently, or if every single search involves checking hundreds of thousands of database entries, this can generate high load and affect the overall performance of the Internet 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 data to determine if the website must be optimized or migrated to another sort of web hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load in case the site is very popular.
