If you have an HTML site, most likely it uses a small amount of system resources simply because it's static, but that isn't the situation with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and provide you with far more functions. This sort of Internet sites produce load on the website hosting server each time someone browses them, due to the fact that the hosting server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the data requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A famous discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is produced every single time a thread is opened or a user looks for a certain phrase. If lots of people connect to the forum all at once, or if every single search involves checking hundreds of thousands of database entries, this could generate high load and affect the overall performance of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can present you with information about the site’s performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics and see if the website must be optimized or moved to a different kind of web hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load in case the website is really popular.
