If you have an HTML Internet site, it probably uses a very small amount of resources because it's static, but that isn't so with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and provide a lot more capabilities. Such sites produce load on the website hosting server every time anyone browses them, as the hosting server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the info requested by the visitor's web browser. A widely used discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is produced every time a thread is opened or a user searches for a given word. If lots of people access the forum concurrently, or if every single 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 statistics can provide info about the site’s functionality, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics and see if the site needs to be optimized or moved to a new sort of hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load if the website is very popular.
