If you have an HTML website, it likely uses a very small amount of system resources because it's static, but this is not so with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and provide you with considerably more capabilities. Such sites generate load on the hosting server each time anyone browses them, because the web server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the info requested by the visitor's web browser. A famous discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is produced every single time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a certain phrase. If many people access the forum concurrently, or if each and every search involves checking tens of thousands of database entries, this may generate high load and affect the overall performance of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can provide you with data about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to decide if the site should be optimized or transferred to another kind of website hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load in case the Internet site is popular.
