The CPU load depends upon the amount of time a web server spends executing a script any time a visitor opens a webpage on a specific script-driven website. Static HTML sites use barely any CPU time, but this isn't the situation with the significantly more advanced and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more customers open this type of a website, the more load shall be created on the web server and if the database is very large, the MySQL server shall be loaded as well. A good example of what can cause high load is an Internet store with tens of thousands of products. If it's popular, plenty of people will be exploring it at the same time and if they look for items, the entire database containing all the products will also be frequently accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load statistics will provide you with 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 website is extremely popular and the current setup cannot deal with the load.

The MySQL statistics shall show you how many times every single database was accessed, plus day-to-day and by the hour statistics for the entire account. With both types of stats, you'll be able to check the numbers for each of the past days and months, so you could see how the sites perform as the traffic to them rises or once you've applied some update.
