The CPU load is dependent upon the amount of time a server spends executing a script any time a visitor opens a webpage on a specific script-driven site. Static HTML websites use barely any CPU time, but this is not the case with the much more advanced and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more people open this kind of an Internet site, the more load shall be generated on the web server and if the database is very large, the MySQL server will be loaded as well. An example of what could cause high load is a web-based store with tens of thousands of products. If it is popular, many people shall be visiting it concurrently and if they look for items, the entire database containing all the products will also be constantly accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load statistics can provide an idea of how the website is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you simply need a more potent web hosting solution - if the site is popular and the existing setup cannot cope with the load.

Statistics are consistently generated every six hours and you may also see the types of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, and so on. MySQL load statistics are listed inside a separate section in which you can see all the queries on an hourly, everyday, and so forth. basis. You'll be able to go back and compare data from various months to find out if some update has transformed the resource usage if the number of website visitors hasn't changed much.
