If you have an HTML Internet site, it likely uses a small amount of system resources simply because it's static, but this is not the situation with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and provide a lot more capabilities. This sort of Internet sites generate load on the website hosting server each time someone browses them, due to the fact that 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 in a database, so some load is generated every single time a thread is opened or a user looks for a particular phrase. If a lot of people connect to the forum all at once, or if every search involves checking tens of thousands of database entries, this could produce high load and affect the performance of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can give you data about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to decide if the Internet site needs to be optimized or transferred to a different kind of website hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load if the Internet site is popular.
