If you have an HTML Internet site, it likely uses a really small amount of resources because it is static, but this is not the case with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and offer you much more capabilities. This kind of websites generate load on the website hosting server each time someone browses them, since the web server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the info requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A well-known discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is created every time a thread is opened or a user looks for a certain term. If a lot of people connect to the forum all at once, or if each search involves checking a large number of database entries, this could generate high load and affect the efficiency of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can provide info about the site’s performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to determine if the Internet site must be optimized or transferred to another type of website hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load if the Internet site is really popular.
