If you have an HTML site, it probably uses a very small amount of system resources simply because it's static, but this isn't the case with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and provide you with considerably more features. This sort of websites generate load on the hosting server each time anyone browses them, simply because the web server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the information requested by the visitor's web browser. A well-known discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is produced every time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a specific name. If many people access the forum all at once, or if each and every search involves checking tens of thousands of database entries, this can generate high load and affect the overall performance of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can present you with data about the site’s efficiency, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to determine if the Internet site should be optimized or transferred to a different type of hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load in the event that the Internet site is extremely popular.
