If you have an HTML site, in all probability it uses a very small amount of resources as it's static, but this isn't so with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and provide much more capabilities. This sort of Internet sites create load on the web hosting server anytime somebody browses them, since the hosting 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 widely used discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is generated every single time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a certain term. If a lot of people access the forum all at once, or if every search involves checking hundreds of thousands of database entries, this can produce high load and affect the functionality of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can provide you with data about the site’s efficiency, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data and see if the Internet site has to be optimized or migrated to a different type of web hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load in case the Internet site is extremely popular.
