If you have an HTML website, in all probability it uses a small amount of system resources simply because it's static, but this isn't so with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and provide far more features. This type of websites produce load on the website hosting server when 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 content requested by the visitor's web browser. A famous discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is generated any time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a given term. If lots of people connect to the forum at the same time, or if each and every search involves checking a large number of database entries, this could produce high load and affect the functionality of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can provide you with info about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to decide if the Internet site must be optimized or migrated to another sort of hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load if the website is popular.
