The CPU load depends upon the time a web server spends executing a script each time a visitor opens a page on a given script-driven website. Static HTML Internet sites use hardly any CPU time, but it's not the situation with the much more advanced and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more clients open this kind of an Internet site, the more load will be generated on the hosting server and if the database is large, the MySQL server shall be loaded also. An illustration of what may cause high load is an online store with tens of thousands of products. If it's popular, plenty of people shall be browsing it all at once and if they look for items, the entire database which contains all the products will also be frequently accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load stats will give you an idea of how the site is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply just need a more effective web hosting solution - if the Internet site is extremely popular and the established setup can't deal with the load.
