If you have an HTML website, it probably uses a very small amount of system resources as it's static, but this is not the situation with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and provide a lot more features. This type of websites produce load on the website hosting server every time someone browses them, as the server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the information requested by the visitor's web browser. A well-known discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is produced every single time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a certain phrase. If lots of people connect to the forum all at once, or if every single search involves checking hundreds of thousands of database entries, this could produce high load and affect the efficiency of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can present you with information about the site’s performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to decide if the website should be optimized or migrated to a new sort of website hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load in case the site is very popular.
