The CPU load depends upon the time period a web server spends executing a script every time a visitor opens a webpage on a specific script-driven website. Static HTML sites use hardly any CPU time, but this is not the situation with the far more advanced and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more individuals open such a website, the more load shall be produced on the web server and if the database is large, the MySQL server shall be loaded too. A good example of what may cause high load is an online store with tens of thousands of products. If it's popular, lots of people shall be visiting it concurrently and if they search for items, the entire database which contains 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 statistics will give you an idea of how the site is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you simply just need a more effective website hosting solution - if the site is extremely popular and the existing setup cannot cope with the load.
