If you have an HTML website, most likely it uses a very small amount of system resources as it's static, but this isn't so with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and offer considerably more functions. This sort of sites generate load on the website hosting server anytime anyone browses them, simply because the hosting server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the data requested by the visitor's web browser. A widely used discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is created every single time a thread is opened or an end user searches for a specific phrase. If lots of people connect to the forum concurrently, or if each search involves checking a large number of database entries, this could create high load and affect the functionality of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can give you information about the site’s performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to decide if the Internet site should be optimized or transferred to a new type of website hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load in the event that the site is really popular.
