If you have an HTML website, in all probability it uses a really small amount of resources simply because it is static, but this isn't so with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and provide way more capabilities. This sort of Internet sites generate load on the website hosting server when someone browses them, because the web server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the info requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A widely used discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is created each time a thread is opened or a user searches for a particular name. If lots of people access the forum simultaneously, or if each search involves checking thousands of database entries, this could produce high load and affect the overall performance of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can give you information about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to determine if the site needs to be optimized or transferred to another sort of hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load in case the site is very popular.
