If you have an HTML website, most likely it uses a small amount of resources as it is static, but this is not the case with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and provide considerably more features. This type of Internet sites produce load on the web hosting server anytime anyone browses them, due to the fact that the hosting server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the content requested by the visitor's web browser. A well-known discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is produced each time a thread is opened or a user searches for a certain term. If a lot of people connect to the forum simultaneously, or if each and every search involves checking a large number of database entries, this may produce high load and affect the overall performance of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can provide you with data about the site’s efficiency, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to decide if the site needs to be optimized or moved to a different type of website hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load if the site is very popular.
