If you have an HTML site, it likely uses a very small amount of system resources simply because it is static, but this is not the case with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and provide you with a lot more features. This sort of sites create load on the web hosting server each and every time anyone browses them, simply because the server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the content requested by the visitor's web browser. A widely used discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is generated every time a thread is opened or an end user searches for a particular word. If lots of people connect to the forum at the same time, or if every search involves checking tens of thousands of database entries, this can create high load and affect the overall performance of the website. 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 stats and see if the site should be optimized or migrated to a different kind of hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load in case the site is very popular.
