If you have an HTML website, in all probability it uses a very small amount of system resources due to the fact that it's static, but this is not so with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and provide you with way more capabilities. This type of Internet sites generate load on the website hosting server every time someone browses them, because the server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the information requested by the visitor's browser. A famous discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is produced every time a thread is opened or a user searches for a given term. If many people access the forum concurrently, or if every search involves checking thousands of database entries, this may produce high load and affect the overall performance of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can provide information about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics and see if the site has to be optimized or moved to a different kind of hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load in case the site is really popular.
