    The loads are not explained. You can host hundreds of of websites on your server which have some 10 visitors per day. Try to host 1 php-nuke website with some 100 people online all the time - your server load never will be under 1.

    Well isn't that obvious? PHP/Database driven sites will use more of the systems resources, therefor not letting you host as many sites. PHP-Nuke or poorly programmed sites will slow a server down a lot. There is no magic number of sites on a system its all a balance of resource management and usage.

    True, below 1.0 load is very important. Average 2-3 load, I would consider get another machine or upgrade hardware.

    I don`t get it ... in my case it`s something like this "Server Load 8.65 (4 cpus)" is this bad?
