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 sites that use PHP scripts and offer considerably more features. Such websites generate load on the hosting server when somebody browses them, 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 browser. A popular discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is produced every single time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a given term. If many people connect to the forum at the same time, or if every search involves checking a large number of database entries, this could create high load and affect the efficiency of the Internet site. 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 stats to determine if the Internet site should be optimized or migrated to a different type of hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load if the Internet site is very popular.
