Whenever a visitor opens your Internet site, the web browser sends a request to the server, which executes it and provides the necessary data as a response. A basic HTML website uses negligible system resources as it's static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use a lot more processing time. Each webpage which is served produces two types of load - CPU load, which depends on the time period the web server spends executing a certain script; and MySQL load, which depends on the amount of database queries generated by the script while the client browses the website. Greater load shall be produced if a lot of people surf a particular website simultaneously or if many database calls are made at the same time. Two illustrations are a discussion board with thousands of users or an online store in which a client enters a term in a search box and thousands of items are searched. Having detailed statistics about the load your website generates can help you optimize the content or see if it is the perfect time to switch to a more powerful type of web hosting service, if the Internet site is simply getting quite popular.
