If you have an HTML site, it likely uses a very small amount of system resources because it is static, but this is not so with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and offer you considerably more functions. This type of Internet sites produce load on the web hosting server each time somebody browses them, since the web server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the content requested by the visitor's browser. A popular discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is generated every time a thread is opened or a user searches for a given term. If lots of people connect to the forum at the same time, or if each and every search involves checking thousands of database entries, this can create high load and affect the overall performance of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can give you info about the site’s functionality, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to decide if the Internet site should be optimized or moved to a different sort of web hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load in the event that the site is really popular.
