When a visitor opens your site, the Internet browser sends a request to the web server, which executes it and provides the required information as a response. A simple HTML website uses negligible system resources as it's static, but database-driven platforms are more requiring and use much more processing time. Each and every page that is served creates 2 types of load - CPU load, that depends on the time period the web server spends executing a specific script; and MySQL load, which depends on the number of database queries created by the script while the client browses the website. Larger load shall be generated if a lot of people look through a given website all at once or if a lot of database calls are made simultaneously. 2 examples are a discussion board with thousands of users or an online store in which a customer enters a term within a search box and tens of thousands of items are searched. Having comprehensive stats about the load which your Internet site generates can help you optimize the content or see if it's the perfect time to switch to a more powerful type of web hosting service, if the Internet site is simply getting very popular.
