If you have an HTML site, in all probability it uses a small amount of system resources simply because it is static, but this isn't so with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and provide a lot more features. This kind of websites create load on the website hosting server each time somebody browses them, as the server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the data requested by the visitor's browser. A widely used discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is produced any time a thread is opened or a user looks for a specific phrase. If lots of people connect to the forum at the same time, or if every single search involves checking thousands of database entries, this could create high load and affect the efficiency of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can provide information about the site’s performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to determine if the website should be optimized or transferred to a different kind of website hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load if the Internet site is extremely popular.
