The CPU load is dependent upon the time a hosting server spends executing a script when a visitor opens a page on a specific script-driven site. Static HTML websites use barely any CPU time, but this is not the situation with the much 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 large, the MySQL server shall be loaded as well. An example of what can cause high load is an online store with thousands of products. If it is popular, a lot of people shall be exploring it all at once and if they seek out items, the entire database containing all the products shall also be constantly accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load stats can provide an idea of how the Internet site is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply just need a more potent website hosting solution - if the website is popular and the current setup cannot deal with the load.
