If you have an HTML website, it probably uses a really small amount of system resources simply because it's static, but this isn't the case with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and provide you with way more functions. This sort of sites produce load on the web hosting server each and every time someone browses them, since the web server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the info requested by the visitor's browser. A well known discussion board, for instance, 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 certain term. If many people connect to the forum all at once, or if every search involves checking hundreds of thousands of database entries, this could generate high load and affect the performance of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can give you info about the site’s performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to determine if the Internet site has to be optimized or transferred to another type of web hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load in the event that the website is popular.
