If you have an HTML website, it likely uses a really small amount of system resources due to the fact that it is static, but this is not so with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and offer much more capabilities. This kind of websites produce load on the web hosting server each and every time someone browses them, as the web server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the information requested by the visitor's browser. A well known discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is generated every time a thread is opened or an end user searches for a particular word. If a lot of people access the forum at the same time, or if every search involves checking thousands of database entries, this could generate high load and affect the overall performance of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can provide 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 transferred to a different kind of web hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load in the event that the site is really popular.
