If you have an HTML site, most likely it uses a small amount of system resources simply because it is static, but this is not the situation with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and provide you with much more capabilities. This kind of websites generate load on the website hosting server every time somebody browses them, since the web server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the content requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A well-known discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is produced every single time a thread is opened or a user searches for a specific name. If lots of people connect to the forum concurrently, or if each search involves checking thousands of database entries, this can generate high load and affect the performance 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 make a decision if the website must be optimized or transferred to a new kind of website hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load in the event that the website is extremely popular.
