The CPU load depends upon the amount of time a server spends executing a script any time a visitor opens a page on a specific script-driven Internet site. Static HTML sites use hardly any CPU time, but this isn't the situation with the considerably more complex and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more individuals open this kind of an Internet site, the more load shall be generated on the web server and if the database is large, the MySQL server will be loaded too. An illustration of what could cause high load is an Internet store with thousands of products. If it's popular, plenty of people will be browsing it all at once and if they search for items, the whole database which contains all of the products will also be continuously accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load data will provide you with an idea of how the site is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply just need a more efficient web hosting solution - if the website is extremely popular and the existing setup cannot handle the load.
