If you have an HTML site, most likely it uses a really small amount of system resources due to the fact that it is static, but this isn't the case with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and offer you way more functions. This type of Internet sites generate load on the web hosting server when someone browses them, as the server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the data requested by the visitor's web browser. A famous discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is produced any time a thread is opened or a user looks for a given name. If lots of people access the forum all at once, or if each and every search involves checking hundreds of thousands of database entries, this may create high load and affect the efficiency of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can give you data about the site’s functionality, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to make a decision if the website has to be optimized or migrated to a different type of web hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load in case the Internet site is extremely popular.
