If you have an HTML website, it likely uses a small amount of resources simply because it is static, but that isn't the case with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and offer you considerably more capabilities. This type of sites create load on the website hosting server every time somebody browses them, since the hosting server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the content requested by the visitor's browser. A popular discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is created every time a thread is opened or a user looks for a specific word. If lots of people connect to the forum at the same time, or if each and every search involves checking a large number of database entries, this can produce high load and affect the efficiency of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can provide information about the site’s functionality, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to make a decision if the website must be optimized or transferred to another type of hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load in the event that the Internet site is popular.
