Balance server load?
Im considering switching to PHP for some of the dynamic functions if it will help balance the load on my sites server (only site on a virtual server).

Using a simple example for a site that receives 30,000 - 100,000 impressions / day - if 40% of your sites server processing is taken up with search.cgi, would switching to the PHP search script (page.php?do=search) help balance the processing load?

and has anyone looked into how much processing is required for each of the Perl scripts (search.cgi and jump.cgi etc.) compared to the PHP equivalent?

Have you looked at mod_perl? You can put all your content under mod_perl and see a dramatic performance boost, as well as improving scalability.
