The CPU load is dependent upon the amount of time a server spends executing a script every time a visitor opens a page on a specific script-driven site. Static HTML Internet sites use hardly any CPU time, but this is not the situation with the significantly more sophisticated and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more people open such an Internet site, the more load shall be produced on the server and if the database is large, the MySQL server shall be loaded also. An illustration of what can cause high load is an Internet store with a huge number of products. If it's popular, a lot of people will be browsing it all at once and if they search for items, the entire database containing all the products will also be continuously accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load stats will offer you an idea of how the site is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply need a more efficient web hosting solution - if the site is extremely popular and the current setup cannot deal with the load.
