The CPU load depends on the amount of time a server spends executing a script when a visitor opens a webpage on a given script-driven Internet site. Static HTML Internet sites use barely any CPU time, but this is not so with the far more complex 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 hosting server and if the database is big, the MySQL server shall be loaded too. A good example of what can cause high load is an online store with thousands of products. If it's popular, many people shall be visiting it concurrently and if they seek out items, the entire database containing all the products shall also be continuously accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load data can provide an idea of how the Internet site is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply just need a more efficient web hosting solution - if the site is popular and the current setup cannot deal with the load.
