A Process is a program running on a computer system which has isolated access to a segment of memory, and runs as a particular User with permissions to access operating system resources.

Typically when you communicate with a Web Browser to a Web Server, two different processes are communicating with the HTTP protocol.

The number of simultaneous processes that a Web Server can run simultaneously affects how much Traffic it can handle.
