If you have an HTML website, it likely uses a very small amount of system resources due to the fact that it is static, but this isn't the situation with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and provide you with far more capabilities. Such websites produce load on the hosting server each and every time someone browses them, because the hosting server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the content requested by the visitor's web browser. A widely used discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is created each time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a particular term. If lots of people connect to the forum concurrently, or if every single search involves checking thousands of database entries, this may generate 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 efficiency, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics and see if the website should be optimized or moved to a new type of web hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load in the event that the website is very popular.
