The CPU load depends on the time a server spends executing a script every time a visitor opens a webpage on a particular script-driven Internet site. Static HTML sites use hardly any CPU time, but it's not the situation with the significantly more advanced and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more clients open this type of a site, the more load will be created on the server and if the database is very large, the MySQL server shall be loaded as well. An example of what may cause high load is an online store with thousands of products. If it's popular, lots of people will be browsing it at the same time and if they seek out items, the entire 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 can provide an idea of how the Internet site is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you simply just need a more effective web hosting solution - if the website is extremely popular and the existing setup cannot cope with the load.
