My concern is that other tasks as a shoping cart are delayed when I am
using mhonarc with a higher data volume.

If possible, you should use separate systems for archive processing
and things like a shopping cart.  Especially if your archives are
large and/or you are using a search indexing tool.

1. How to measure the "average" CPU load?
When I try to use a longer period for refreshing as
~# top s d60
I estimated a average value. but I got no value for a mhonarc process.
Is _top_ only a peak measure tool or may I use it to get a average

You should probable direct such questions to a Linux/unix system forum.

2. How to control priority?
When I use a cron job to trigger, I might reduce the priority of the
mhonarc process by _NICE_.
But how may I adjust the priority of the normal tasks as background

I'm not sure what you mean by "indexing".  You should be able to
use the nice program to start programs with a given priority.
