If you have an HTML Internet site, in all probability it uses a really small amount of resources due to the fact that it's static, but this isn't the case with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and offer you considerably more capabilities. This sort of websites create load on the hosting server when somebody browses them, because the web server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the info requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A well known discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is created every time a thread is opened or a user searches for a given name. If many people connect to the forum all at once, or if every single search involves checking thousands of database entries, this may create high load and affect the overall performance of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can provide you with information about the site’s functionality, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data to decide if the website should be optimized or migrated to a different kind of web hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load in case the site is popular.
