The CPU load is dependent upon the time a web server spends executing a script every time a visitor opens a webpage on a given script-driven Internet site. Static HTML websites use barely any CPU time, but it is not the situation with the much more sophisticated and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more customers open such a site, the more load shall be produced on the server and if the database is very large, the MySQL server will be loaded as well. A good example of what may cause high load is a web-based store with tens of thousands of products. If it is popular, a lot of people will be exploring it at the same time and if they look for items, the whole database which contains all of the products shall also be continuously accessed by the script, resulting 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 has to be optimized or if you simply just need a more powerful website hosting solution - if the site is really popular and the current setup can't deal with the load.
