If you have an HTML website, most likely it uses a very small amount of resources due to the fact that it's static, but this is not the case with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and provide way more capabilities. This kind of websites generate load on the hosting server every time someone browses them, simply because the web server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the content requested by the visitor's web browser. A widely used discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is generated every 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 every single search involves checking hundreds of thousands of database entries, this may create high load and affect the efficiency of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can provide info about the site’s performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to determine if the site must be optimized or migrated to a new type of web hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load in case the website is really popular.
