The CPU load is dependent upon the amount of time a web server spends executing a script when a visitor opens a page on a specific script-driven Internet site. Static HTML websites use barely any CPU time, but it's not the situation with the considerably more complex and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more people open this kind of an Internet site, the more load shall be created on the web server and if the database is big, the MySQL server will be loaded also. A good example of what could cause high load is an online store with tens of thousands of products. If it's popular, plenty of people will be browsing it concurrently and if they look for items, the whole database which contains all the products shall also be frequently accessed by the script, which will result 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 just need a more effective website hosting solution - if the site is very popular and the established setup can't handle the load.
