If you have an HTML website, most likely it uses a very small amount of system resources due to the fact that it is static, but this is not so with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and offer you considerably more functions. Such websites produce load on the website hosting server anytime someone browses them, simply because the hosting server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the info requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A widely used discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is generated any time a thread is opened or a user searches for a certain term. If a lot of people access the forum all at once, or if every single search involves checking hundreds of thousands of database entries, this can produce high load and affect the efficiency of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can present you with data about the site’s efficiency, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to make a decision if the website should be optimized or migrated to a different type of website hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load in the event that the Internet site is popular.
