If you have an HTML Internet site, it probably uses a really small amount of resources because it's static, but this is not the situation with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and offer much more functions. This sort of Internet sites generate load on the hosting server every time someone browses them, as the hosting server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the data requested by the visitor's browser. A famous discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is produced every single time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a given name. If lots of people access the forum all at once, or if every search involves checking tens of thousands of database entries, this can generate high load and affect the overall performance of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can provide data about the site’s efficiency, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to make a decision if the site needs to be optimized or moved to a new kind of web hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load if the website is popular.
