If you have an HTML Internet site, most likely it uses a small amount of system resources as it is static, but this is not the case with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and provide considerably more capabilities. Such sites generate load on the website hosting server when anyone browses them, since the server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the information requested by the visitor's browser. A widely used discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is created any time a thread is opened or a user searches for a specific term. If a lot of people connect to the forum at the same time, or if each and every search involves checking thousands of database entries, this may generate high load and affect the functionality of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can provide data about the site’s functionality, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to decide if the website has to be optimized or transferred to a new kind of web hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load in case the website is really popular.
