If you have an HTML Internet site, it probably uses a really small amount of resources due to the fact that it is static, but that isn't the situation with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and offer you far more functions. This kind of sites generate load on the web hosting server each and every time anyone browses them, simply because the hosting server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the data requested by the visitor's web browser. A well known discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is produced every single time a thread is opened or a user looks for a particular term. If many people access the forum concurrently, or if each and every search involves checking thousands of database entries, this can create high load and affect the functionality of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can provide data about the site’s performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to determine if the Internet site needs to be optimized or transferred to a new kind of website hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load if the website is really popular.
