If you have an HTML Internet site, it probably uses a very small amount of resources as it's static, but that isn't so with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and provide much more capabilities. This kind of sites produce load on the hosting server each time anyone browses them, because the hosting server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the data requested by the visitor's browser. A well-known discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is produced every time a thread is opened or a user looks for a specific phrase. If a lot of people connect to the forum simultaneously, or if every single search involves checking thousands of database entries, this could generate high load and affect the performance of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can provide info about the site’s efficiency, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to determine if the site should be optimized or migrated to another sort of web hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load in the event that the site is extremely popular.
