If you have an HTML site, in all probability it uses a really small amount of resources simply because it is static, but this is not the situation with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and offer you considerably more features. This sort of websites generate load on the website hosting server every time anyone 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 data requested by the visitor's browser. A popular discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is generated any time a thread is opened or a user searches for a certain phrase. If many people access the forum simultaneously, or if each search involves checking hundreds of thousands of database entries, this may produce high load and affect the performance of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can present you with data about the site’s efficiency, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to make a decision if the site must be optimized or migrated to a different type of web hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load in case the site is extremely popular.
