The CPU load depends on the length of time a hosting server spends executing a script whenever a visitor opens a webpage on a certain script-driven Internet site. Static HTML websites use barely any CPU time, but this isn't the case with the significantly more sophisticated and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more people open such a site, the more load will be produced on the server and if the database is big, the MySQL server will be loaded too. An example of what can cause high load is an Internet store with a huge number of products. If it's popular, lots of people shall be visiting it simultaneously and if they seek out items, the whole database which contains all of the products shall also be continuously accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load statistics will give you an idea of how the site is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you just need a more powerful hosting solution - if the site is very popular and the established setup cannot cope with the load.

Stats are routinely produced every 6 hours and you could also see the kinds of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, and so on. MySQL load stats are listed within an individual section where you'll be able to see all the queries on a per hour, day-to-day, and so forth. basis.

With both kinds of statistics, you are able to check the numbers for each of the past days and months, so you could see how sites perform as the traffic to them grows or once you've applied some update.
