The CPU load depends upon the time a web server spends executing a script every time a visitor opens a webpage on a specific script-driven Internet site. Static HTML websites use hardly any CPU time, but it's not so with the significantly more advanced and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more clients open such a website, the more load shall be produced on the server and if the database is large, the MySQL server will be loaded as well. A good example of what could cause high load is a web-based store with tens of thousands of products. If it's popular, many people shall be browsing it all at once and if they search for items, the whole database that contains all the products will also be constantly accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load statistics will provide you with an idea of how the Internet site is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you just need a more efficient hosting solution - if the website is extremely popular and the current setup cannot cope with the load.
