If you have an HTML Internet site, most likely it uses a small amount of resources simply because it's static, but this isn't the case with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and provide you with much more features. This sort of websites generate load on the web hosting server anytime anyone browses them, as the web server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the information requested by the visitor's browser. A well-known discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is created any time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a particular phrase. If a lot of people access the forum simultaneously, or if each search involves checking thousands of database entries, this could produce high load and affect the efficiency of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can provide you with information about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data to decide if the site needs to be optimized or moved to another type of website hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load if the website is very popular.
