If you have an HTML website, it likely uses a really small amount of system resources because it is static, but this is not the situation with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and offer you considerably more capabilities. This kind of sites produce load on the web hosting server when anyone browses them, since the web server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the data requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A well-known discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is produced every single time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a certain term. If a lot of people access the forum simultaneously, or if every search involves checking a large number of database entries, this could create high load and affect the efficiency of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can provide info about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics and see if the website must be optimized or moved to a different sort of website hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load in case the site is very popular.
