If you have an HTML site, it probably uses a really small amount of system resources simply because it's static, but this isn't the situation with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and offer you way more features. This type of Internet sites generate load on the hosting server each and every time anyone browses them, as the hosting server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the info requested by the visitor's web browser. A popular discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is created every single time a thread is opened or a user searches for a given phrase. If lots of people connect to the forum simultaneously, or if each search involves checking tens of thousands of database entries, this may produce high load and affect the functionality of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can give you info about the site’s performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats and see if the Internet site must be optimized or moved to a new sort of web hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load in case the Internet site is really popular.
