Whenever a visitor opens your Internet site, the web browser sends a request to the server, which in turn executes it and provides the necessary information as a response. A simple HTML Internet site uses very little resources because it is static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use a lot more processing time. Each page that is served creates 2 forms of load - CPU load, which depends on the time the web server spends executing a particular script; and MySQL load, that depends on the number of database queries produced by the script while the customer browses the Internet site. Higher load will be created if loads of people browse a particular website concurrently or if a considerable amount of database calls are made concurrently. Two good examples are a discussion board with thousands of users or an online store where a visitor enters a term within a search box and thousands of items are searched. Having comprehensive data about the load which your site generates can help you optimize the content or see if it's time to switch to a more powerful type of web hosting service, if the website is simply getting really popular.
