If you have an HTML website, in all probability it uses a really small amount of system resources simply because it's static, but this is not the case with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and provide a lot more capabilities. This type of websites generate load on the website hosting server each and every time someone browses them, as the hosting server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the information requested by the visitor's browser. A widely used discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is produced every single time a thread is opened or a user searches for a specific phrase. If lots of people connect to the forum concurrently, or if every single search involves checking thousands of database entries, this could generate high load and affect the functionality of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can provide information about the site’s performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to decide if the website needs to be optimized or transferred to a new type of hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load in the event that the website is really popular.
