The CPU load depends upon the amount of time a server spends executing a script any time a visitor opens a page on a given script-driven Internet site. Static HTML sites use barely any CPU time, but this is not the situation with the far more advanced and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more customers open this type of a site, the more load shall be created on the web server and if the database is large, the MySQL server will be loaded also. An illustration of what may cause high load is an Internet store with tens of thousands of products. If it's popular, many people shall be exploring it concurrently and if they seek out items, the entire database which contains all of the products shall also be constantly 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 website is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you simply need a more potent hosting solution - if the website is extremely popular and the existing setup can't handle the load.
