If you have an HTML site, it likely uses a really small amount of system resources simply because it is static, but this isn't the case with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and offer way more capabilities. This kind of websites generate load on the website hosting server each and every time somebody browses them, due to the fact that the server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the data requested by the visitor's web browser. A well-known discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is generated any time a thread is opened or a user looks for a given name. If lots of people connect to the forum all at once, or if each search involves checking thousands of database entries, this could produce high load and affect the functionality of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can present you with info about the site’s efficiency, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats and see if the site needs to be optimized or moved to a new kind of web hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load if the website is popular.
