If you have an HTML site, in all probability it uses a small amount of system resources due to the fact that it is static, but this is not the situation with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and offer far more capabilities. This sort of sites create load on the website hosting server every time somebody browses them, because the hosting server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the data requested by the visitor's web browser. A well-known discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is generated any time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a certain name. If lots of people access the forum simultaneously, or if each search involves checking a large number of database entries, this may produce high load and affect the functionality of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can provide information about the site’s functionality, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to decide if the Internet site has to be optimized or moved to a different type of website hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load in the event that the site is very popular.
