If you have an HTML website, in all probability it uses a small amount of resources as it is static, but this is not the situation with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and provide considerably more functions. This sort of websites produce load on the website hosting server anytime anyone browses them, since the hosting server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the content requested by the visitor's browser. A widely used discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is created every single time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a certain term. If a lot of people access the forum concurrently, or if every single search involves checking thousands of database entries, this can create high load and affect the functionality of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can provide information about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats and see if the website has to be optimized or transferred to a new type of web hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load in case the website is really popular.
