If you have an HTML website, in all probability it uses a very small amount of resources because it's static, but that isn't the case with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and provide you with considerably more capabilities. This type of sites produce load on the web hosting server anytime somebody 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 web browser. A popular discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is produced any time a thread is opened or a user looks for a specific phrase. If lots of people access the forum all at once, or if every search involves checking a large number of database entries, this could create high load and affect the efficiency of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can give you information about the site’s efficiency, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to determine if the Internet site has to be optimized or transferred to another type of web hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load in case the Internet site is very popular.
