If you have an HTML site, it likely uses a really small amount of system resources as it is static, but this is not so with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and provide much more functions. This kind of Internet sites create load on the hosting server each time somebody browses them, since the server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the content requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A popular discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is produced every single time a thread is opened or a user searches for a specific word. If lots of people connect to the forum simultaneously, or if every single search involves checking tens of thousands of database entries, this can create high load and affect the performance of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can present you with info about the site’s functionality, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to make a decision if the website needs to be optimized or moved to a different kind of hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load in case the site is really popular.
