If you have an HTML website, most likely it uses a small amount of system resources because it is static, but this is not so with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and provide much more functions. This sort of websites generate load on the website hosting server each time somebody browses them, because the hosting server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the information requested by the visitor's web browser. A famous discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is generated every time a thread is opened or a user looks for a specific name. If lots of people connect to the forum simultaneously, or if every search involves checking hundreds of thousands of database entries, this may create high load and affect the efficiency of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can provide data about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data to make a decision if the Internet site has to be optimized or moved to another kind of web hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load in the event that the Internet site is really popular.
