The CPU load depends on the length of time a server spends executing a script every time a visitor opens a page on a certain script-driven website. Static HTML sites use hardly any CPU time, but this is not the situation with the considerably more sophisticated and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more customers open this type of a website, the more load will be produced on the web server and if the database is large, the MySQL server shall be loaded as well. A good example of what may cause high load is an online store with thousands of products. If it is popular, lots of people shall be visiting it all at once and if they search for items, the entire database that contains all the products will also be continuously accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load data will provide you with an idea of how the website is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you simply need a more effective website hosting solution - if the Internet site is popular and the existing setup can't handle the load.
