The CPU load depends on the amount of time a hosting server spends executing a script when a visitor opens a webpage on a certain script-driven website. Static HTML websites use hardly any CPU time, but it's not so with the significantly more advanced and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more individuals open such a site, the more load shall be created on the web server and if the database is very large, the MySQL server will be loaded as well. A good example of what may cause high load is a web-based store with a large number of products. If it is popular, a lot of people will be exploring it concurrently and if they seek out 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 data can provide an idea of how the site is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply need a more efficient website hosting solution - if the website is really popular and the existing setup cannot cope with the load.
