The CPU load depends upon the length of time a web server spends executing a script when a visitor opens a page on a particular script-driven site. Static HTML websites use hardly any CPU time, but this is not so with the significantly more sophisticated and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more individuals open this sort of an Internet site, the more load shall be generated on the server and if the database is big, the MySQL server will be loaded too. A good example of what could cause high load is an Internet store with tens of thousands of products. If it is popular, many people will be visiting it concurrently and if they search for items, the entire database containing all the products will also be frequently accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load data will give you an idea of how the Internet site is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply need a more efficient website hosting solution - if the Internet site is very popular and the existing setup can't cope with the load.
