If you have an HTML Internet site, in all probability it uses a really small amount of resources simply because it is static, but this isn't the case with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and offer you way more functions. This kind of Internet sites generate load on the website hosting server every time somebody browses them, because the server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the information requested by the visitor's browser. A well known 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 certain phrase. If a lot of people connect to the forum concurrently, or if each and every search involves checking hundreds of thousands of database entries, this could generate high load and affect the functionality of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can provide you with information about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data to make a decision if the site needs to be optimized or transferred to a new type of hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load in the event that the Internet site is popular.
