If you have an HTML website, most likely it uses a small amount of resources because it is static, but this isn't the situation with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and provide you with a lot more features. This type of Internet sites produce load on the web hosting server each time somebody browses them, since the hosting server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the content requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A well-known discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is produced every time a thread is opened or a user looks for a particular term. If lots of people connect to the forum at the same time, or if every search involves checking hundreds of thousands of database entries, this could generate high load and affect the performance of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can present you with information about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data and see if the website should be optimized or transferred to another kind of website hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load in case the website is really popular.
