If you have an HTML Internet site, it likely uses a small amount of resources simply because it is static, but this is not so with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and provide you with much more functions. This type of sites produce load on the web hosting server each and every time somebody browses them, since the web server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the content requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A well known discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is created each time a thread is opened or an end user searches for a certain phrase. If lots of people access the forum simultaneously, or if every search involves checking thousands of database entries, this may create high load and affect the functionality of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can give you info about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data to make a decision if the site must be optimized or moved to another type of web hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load in case the site is popular.
