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 the situation with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and provide you with much more functions. This type of Internet sites generate load on the web hosting server every time anyone browses them, as the server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the info requested by the visitor's browser. A well known discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is produced every time a thread is opened or a user searches for a specific phrase. If many people connect to the forum concurrently, or if each search involves checking a large number of database entries, this could generate high load and affect the functionality of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can provide you with data about the site’s efficiency, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data to make a decision if the site must be optimized or transferred to a new kind of hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load if the Internet site is really popular.
