If you have an HTML website, it probably uses a small amount of system resources due to the fact that it's static, but that isn't the situation with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and offer you much more functions. This type of websites produce load on the website hosting server when someone browses them, simply because the server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the information requested by the visitor's browser. A widely used discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is generated any time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a particular phrase. If a lot of people access the forum all at once, or if each and every search involves checking hundreds of thousands of database entries, this can generate high load and affect the overall performance of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can present you with data about the site’s functionality, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to determine if the website needs to be optimized or transferred to a new type of website hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load if the site is popular.
