The CPU load depends on the time period a web server spends executing a script when a visitor opens a page on a certain script-driven website. Static HTML Internet sites use hardly any CPU time, but this isn't the situation with the considerably more sophisticated and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more customers open this sort of a website, the more load shall be created on the web server and if the database is big, the MySQL server shall be loaded as well. An illustration of what may cause high load is an Internet store with thousands of products. If it's popular, a lot of people shall be visiting it simultaneously and if they seek out items, the whole 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 statistics can provide an idea of how the website is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you just need a more effective web hosting solution - if the website is very popular and the established setup cannot cope with the load.
