Whenever a visitor opens your site, the web browser sends a request to the web server, which executes it and provides the necessary information as a response. A standard HTML website uses very little resources because it's static, but database-driven platforms are more requiring and use a lot more processing time. Each page that is served produces 2 sorts of load - CPU load, which depends on the length of time the server spends executing a certain script; and MySQL load, that depends on the number of database queries created by the script while the end user browses the Internet site. Higher load shall be created if a considerable amount of people browse a particular site at the same time or if many database calls are made concurrently. 2 good examples are a discussion board with many users or an online store in which a customer enters a term inside a search box and tens of thousands of items are searched. Having detailed stats about the load your Internet site generates can help you boost the content or see if it's time to switch to a more powerful kind of website hosting service, if the Internet site is simply getting very popular.
