If you have an HTML website, it likely uses a really small amount of resources as it is static, but this isn't the case with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and provide far more features. This sort of Internet sites generate load on the hosting server each time anyone browses them, simply because the hosting server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the content requested by the visitor's web browser. A famous discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is generated every single time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a specific word. If many people connect to the forum at the same time, or if every single search involves checking hundreds of thousands of database entries, this could produce high load and affect the performance of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can provide you with info about the site’s efficiency, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to determine if the site needs to be optimized or moved to a different type of website hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load if the Internet site is extremely popular.
