The CPU load is dependent upon the amount of time a web server spends executing a script each time a visitor opens a page on a specific script-driven website. Static HTML Internet sites use hardly any CPU time, but it is not so with the much more sophisticated and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more individuals open this kind of an Internet site, the more load shall be created on the hosting server and if the database is big, the MySQL server shall be loaded too. An example of what may cause high load is an Internet store with tens of thousands of products. If it is popular, plenty of people shall be exploring it all at once and if they search for items, the whole database containing all of the products will also be continuously accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load statistics will give you an idea of how the Internet site is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you simply need a more powerful web hosting solution - if the Internet site is extremely popular and the existing setup can't cope with the load.

Statistics are routinely generated every 6 hours and you could also see the different types of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, and so on. MySQL load statistics are listed in a different section where you'll be able to see all the queries on an hourly, day-to-day, and so forth. basis.
