If you have an HTML Internet site, in all probability it uses a very small amount of resources due to the fact that it's static, but this is not so with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and offer you a lot more capabilities. Such sites produce load on the web hosting server each and every time anyone browses them, due to the fact that the server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the data requested by the visitor's web browser. A well known discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is generated each time a thread is opened or a user looks for a certain phrase. If a lot of people access the forum all at once, or if every single search involves checking tens of thousands of database entries, this could generate high load and affect the overall performance of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can give you information about the site’s functionality, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to determine if the Internet site must be optimized or migrated to another type of hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load in the event that the site is extremely popular.
