If you have an HTML site, most likely it uses a small amount of resources due to the fact that it's static, but that isn't the situation with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and offer way more capabilities. This sort of websites create load on the hosting server every time anyone browses them, as the server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the data requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A widely used discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is generated any time a thread is opened or a user searches for a specific term. If lots of people access the forum concurrently, or if every search involves checking a large number of database entries, this may generate high load and affect the functionality of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can give you data about the site’s efficiency, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats and see if the Internet site must be optimized or moved to a new sort of hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load in the event that the website is popular.
