If you have an HTML website, in all probability it uses a small amount of system resources simply because it is static, but that isn't so with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and provide you with far more capabilities. This type of sites create load on the hosting server every time someone browses them, since the server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the data requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A widely used discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is produced every single time a thread is opened or a user looks for a specific word. If a lot of people access the forum all at once, or if each and every search involves checking hundreds of thousands of database entries, this could produce high load and affect the functionality of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can provide data about the site’s functionality, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to decide if the site must be optimized or migrated to a different kind of website hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load in case the website is very popular.
