The CPU load depends upon the length of time a server spends executing a script any time a visitor opens a page on a certain script-driven website. Static HTML Internet sites use barely any CPU time, but this isn't so with the much more advanced and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more people open this type of a site, the more load shall be generated on the web server and if the database is very large, the MySQL server shall be loaded as well. An example of what could cause high load is an online store with tens of thousands of products. If it's popular, lots of people will be browsing it concurrently and if they look for items, the entire database that contains all of the products shall also be frequently 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 website is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply just need a more potent hosting solution - if the Internet site is very popular and the established setup cannot handle the load.
