If you have an HTML website, in all probability it uses a really small amount of resources due to the fact that it is static, but this isn't the case with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and provide you with considerably more capabilities. This kind of websites produce load on the web hosting server every time somebody browses them, due to the fact that the server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the info requested by the visitor's web browser. A famous discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is created each time a thread is opened or a user searches for a certain word. If many people access the forum simultaneously, or if each search involves checking a large number of database entries, this may produce high load and affect the performance of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can provide you with info about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data to decide if the website has to be optimized or moved to a different type of web hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load in the event that the website is really popular.
