The CPU load is dependent upon the time a server spends executing a script any time a visitor opens a webpage on a particular script-driven Internet site. Static HTML Internet sites use barely any CPU time, but this is not the situation with the considerably more sophisticated and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more clients open such a site, the more load shall be generated on the web server and if the database is large, the MySQL server will be loaded also. An illustration of what can cause high load is a web-based store with thousands of products. If it's popular, many people will be visiting it at the same time and if they look for items, the whole database containing all of the products will also be constantly accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load data will provide you with an idea of how the site is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you simply just need a more powerful web hosting solution - if the Internet site is very popular and the established setup can't deal with the load.

Stats are consistently generated every 6 hours and you may also see the kinds of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, and so forth. MySQL load stats are listed in a different section in which you could see all the queries on an hourly, daily, and so on. basis. You could go back and compare stats from various months to determine if some update has changed the resource usage if the total amount of website visitors hasn't changed much.
