If you have an HTML site, it likely uses a small amount of resources simply because it is static, but this isn't so with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and provide you with way more capabilities. This type of sites create load on the hosting server anytime somebody browses them, simply because the server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the content requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A widely used discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is generated any time a thread is opened or a user looks for a certain name. If lots of people connect to the forum simultaneously, or if every search involves checking tens of thousands of database entries, this could produce high load and affect the performance of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can present you with info about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to make a decision if the site needs to be optimized or migrated to a new sort of hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load in the event that the site is extremely popular.
