If you have an HTML site, it probably uses a really small amount of system resources due to the fact that it is static, but that isn't the case with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and provide you with way more functions. Such sites create load on the website hosting server anytime somebody browses them, as the web server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the information requested by the visitor's web browser. A widely used discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is created every single time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a given term. If many people connect to the forum concurrently, or if each and every search involves checking thousands of database entries, this could generate high load and affect the performance of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can present you with info about the site’s performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data to determine if the Internet site must be optimized or migrated to a new type of hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load if the Internet site is extremely popular.
