If you have an HTML site, it likely uses a very small amount of system resources due to the fact that it is static, but that isn't the case with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and provide you with way more capabilities. This kind of sites create load on the website hosting server each time someone browses them, as the web server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the content requested by the visitor's web browser. A well-known discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is generated each time a thread is opened or a user searches for a specific name. If a lot of people connect to the forum at the same time, or if every single search involves checking hundreds of thousands of database entries, this may produce high load and affect the functionality of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can provide you with data about the site’s performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data to decide if the Internet site has to be optimized or moved to a new type of hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load in the event that the website is popular.
