If you have an HTML Internet site, most likely it uses a small amount of resources due to the fact that it's static, but that isn't the situation with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and offer considerably more features. This sort of Internet sites produce load on the website hosting server when someone browses them, simply because the hosting server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the info requested by the visitor's Internet 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 term. If a lot of people connect to the forum concurrently, or if each search involves checking a large number of database entries, this can produce high load and affect the efficiency of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can give you information about the site’s performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to determine if the site has to be optimized or moved to a new kind of hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load in the event that the site is extremely popular.
