If you have an HTML site, it likely uses a small amount of resources because it's static, but this isn't the case with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and offer you way more features. This kind of websites produce load on the hosting server when somebody browses them, as the server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the information requested by the visitor's browser. A popular discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is created any time a thread is opened or a user searches for a certain word. If lots of people connect to the forum concurrently, or if each search involves checking tens of thousands of database entries, this may generate high load and affect the performance of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can provide you with information about the site’s functionality, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data to decide if the website should be optimized or transferred to a different sort of hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load if the Internet site is popular.
