If you have an HTML Internet site, it likely uses a small amount of resources simply because it is static, but this isn't so with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and offer far more features. This sort of sites create load on the website hosting server every time someone browses them, due to the fact that the web server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the data requested by the visitor's web browser. A well-known discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is produced every time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a given term. If a lot of people access the forum simultaneously, or if every search involves checking hundreds of thousands of database entries, this could generate high load and affect the efficiency of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can present you with information about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to determine if the website must be optimized or moved to a new type of website hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load in the event that the Internet site is really popular.
