If you have an HTML website, in all probability it uses a really small amount of resources as it is static, but this isn't the situation with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and provide you with much more functions. This kind of Internet sites produce load on the website hosting server anytime somebody browses them, as the hosting server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the content requested by the visitor's browser. A well known discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is generated every time a thread is opened or a user searches for a specific word. If a lot of people access the forum all at once, or if each search involves checking tens of thousands of database entries, this could create high load and affect the performance of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can give you information about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data to determine if the website should be optimized or moved to a different type of web hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load in case the Internet site is very popular.
