If you have an HTML site, it likely uses a small amount of system resources because it is static, but this isn't so with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and provide much more capabilities. This sort of websites create load on the hosting server each and every time anyone browses them, due to the fact that the hosting server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the information requested by the visitor's browser. A widely used discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is created every single time a thread is opened or a user looks for a given word. If lots of people connect to the forum simultaneously, or if every single search involves checking thousands of database entries, this may generate high load and affect the efficiency of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can present you with info about the site’s efficiency, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats and see if the site should be optimized or migrated to another type of web hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load if the website is really popular.
