If you have an HTML Internet site, in all probability it uses a small amount of resources simply because it is static, but this is not the case with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and offer far more capabilities. This kind of websites create load on the website hosting server anytime somebody browses them, because the web server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the data requested by the visitor's browser. A well known discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is created each time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a particular word. If lots of people access the forum simultaneously, or if every search involves checking thousands of database entries, this could create high load and affect the performance of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can present you with information about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data to make a decision if the Internet site needs to be optimized or transferred to a different type of web hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load if the Internet site is really popular.
