If you have an HTML website, in all probability it uses a small amount of resources simply because it's static, but that isn't the situation with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and provide you with a lot more functions. Such sites generate load on the web hosting server each and every time anyone browses them, since the web server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the content requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A popular discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is produced every time a thread is opened or an end user searches for a particular term. If lots of people connect to the forum at the same time, or if every single search involves checking a large number of database entries, this can create high load and affect the functionality of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can give you info about the site’s efficiency, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to determine if the site must be optimized or migrated to a different sort of website hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load in case the site is really popular.
