If you have an HTML site, most likely it uses a very small amount of resources due to the fact that it is static, but this is not the case with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and offer much more capabilities. This type of websites generate load on the website hosting server anytime someone browses them, as the web server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the data requested by the visitor's web browser. A popular discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is generated any time a thread is opened or a user searches for a given term. If many people connect to the forum at the same time, or if every single search involves checking thousands of database entries, this can generate high load and affect the efficiency of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can provide info about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to make a decision if the website should be optimized or moved to another type of website hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load if the site is popular.
