If you have an HTML site, it likely uses a small amount of system resources as it's static, but this isn't so with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and provide you with far more capabilities. This type of sites create load on the website hosting server each time somebody browses them, as the web server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the data requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A well known discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is created each time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a given term. If many people connect to the forum simultaneously, or if each and every search involves checking tens of thousands of database entries, this may create high load and affect the overall performance of the website. 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 to determine if the website should be optimized or moved to a different kind of web hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load in case the website is very popular.
