If you have an HTML website, it probably uses a really small amount of system resources because it is static, but this is not the case with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and offer considerably more capabilities. This sort of Internet sites generate load on the web hosting server anytime anyone browses them, as the web server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the information requested by the visitor's web browser. A popular discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is created any time a thread is opened or an end user searches for a given name. If lots of people connect to the forum simultaneously, or if every single search involves checking a large number of database entries, this can create high load and affect the efficiency of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can provide you with info about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to make a decision if the site must be optimized or moved to a new sort of website hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load if the site is really popular.
