If you have an HTML website, it probably uses a small amount of system resources as it's static, but this isn't the situation with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and provide you with far more features. This sort of websites generate load on the web hosting server anytime somebody browses them, because the server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the content requested by the visitor's web browser. A well-known discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is produced each time a thread is opened or an end user searches for a particular name. If lots of people access the forum simultaneously, or if every single search involves checking hundreds of thousands of database entries, this can create high load and affect the performance of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can give you data about the site’s functionality, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to make a decision if the website must be optimized or migrated to a new kind of website hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load in the event that the Internet site is really popular.
