If you have an HTML site, it probably uses a very small amount of resources simply because it's static, but that isn't the situation with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and offer you considerably more features. Such Internet sites produce load on the web hosting server when anyone browses them, since the web server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the content requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A widely used discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is produced every time a thread is opened or a user searches for a certain phrase. If lots of people access the forum at the same time, or if each and every search involves checking hundreds of thousands of database entries, this may create high load and affect the efficiency of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can give you information about the site’s functionality, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics and see if the website needs to be optimized or migrated to a different sort of web hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load if the Internet site is popular.
