If you have an HTML Internet site, it likely uses a small amount of resources simply because it's static, but this isn't the situation with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and offer you a lot more functions. This type of websites produce load on the website hosting server each and every time someone browses them, as the server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the info requested by the visitor's web browser. A well known discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is produced every time a thread is opened or a user looks for a particular term. If a lot of people access the forum concurrently, or if every single search involves checking tens of thousands of database entries, this may generate high load and affect the performance of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can present you with data about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data to determine if the website should be optimized or transferred to another type of web hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load in case the site is very popular.
