If you have an HTML website, it likely uses a small amount of resources due to the fact that it is static, but this is not the case with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and provide way more functions. This sort of websites generate load on the hosting server each time somebody browses them, because the hosting server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the info requested by the visitor's browser. A well known discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is generated every single time a thread is opened or a user searches for a certain phrase. If many people connect to the forum simultaneously, or if every single search involves checking hundreds of thousands of database entries, this can generate high load and affect the performance of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can provide you with data about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to determine if the website should be optimized or moved to another type of website hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load if the Internet site is really popular.
