The CPU load depends on the time a server spends executing a script when a visitor opens a webpage on a particular script-driven site. Static HTML Internet sites use hardly any CPU time, but it's not so with the far more sophisticated and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more customers open such a site, the more load will be generated on the web server and if the database is large, the MySQL server shall be loaded as well. A good example of what may cause high load is an online store with thousands of products. If it's popular, many people shall be exploring it simultaneously and if they look for items, the entire database containing all of 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 will provide you with an idea of how the website is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you simply just need a more potent website hosting solution - if the website is extremely popular and the established setup can't deal with the load.

The MySQL Load section give you additional information about the number of queries to every database that you have created in the account. Once again, you are able to see month-to-month, day-to-day and hourly data, which will give you info that is different from the traffic or the number of visitors that you get.
