If you have an HTML website, most likely it uses a very small amount of resources as it is static, but this isn't the case with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and provide a lot more functions. This type of Internet sites generate load on the web hosting server each time someone browses them, simply because the web server requires 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, for example, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is produced every time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a given phrase. If many people connect to the forum concurrently, or if every single search involves checking a large number of database entries, this could generate high load and affect the performance of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can give you information about the site’s performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data to decide if the website needs to be optimized or migrated to a different type of web hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load if the website is really popular.
