If you have an HTML site, it likely uses a very small amount of system resources due to the fact that it is static, but this is not so with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and provide far more functions. This kind of websites produce load on the hosting server every time someone browses them, as the server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the information requested by the visitor's browser. A widely used discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is generated every time a thread is opened or a user searches for a given name. If many people connect to the forum concurrently, or if every single search involves checking tens of thousands of database entries, this may create high load and affect the overall performance of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can provide you with data about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to make a decision if the site has to be optimized or moved to a new kind of hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load if the website is really popular.
