If you have an HTML Internet site, it probably uses a very small amount of resources because it's static, but this is not so with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and offer a lot more functions. This kind of Internet sites create load on the web hosting server when someone browses them, as the web server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the info requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A well known discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is generated every time a thread is opened or a user looks for a particular phrase. If many people access the forum all at once, or if each search involves checking tens of thousands of database entries, this can produce high load and affect the efficiency of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can present you with info about the site’s efficiency, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data to make a decision if the Internet site needs to be optimized or migrated to another type of web hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load if the site is really popular.
