If you have an HTML site, it likely uses a very small amount of resources due to the fact that it is static, but this is not the situation with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and provide a lot more features. This type of sites produce load on the web hosting server anytime someone browses them, due to the fact that the web server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the information requested by the visitor's web browser. A famous discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is produced every single time a thread is opened or a user searches for a given phrase. If many people connect to the forum at the same time, or if each search involves checking a large number of database entries, this may create high load and affect the functionality of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can give you information about the site’s functionality, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to decide if the site has to be optimized or moved to a different kind of web hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load if the website is popular.
