The CPU load depends on the length of time a hosting server spends executing a script when a visitor opens a webpage on a certain script-driven site. Static HTML sites use hardly any CPU time, but it's not so with the far more complex and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more individuals open this type of an Internet site, the more load shall be generated on the 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, plenty of people shall be visiting it simultaneously and if they search for items, the entire database that contains all of the products will also be continuously accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load data will give you an idea of how the website is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you simply just need a more efficient web hosting solution - if the Internet site is very popular and the current setup can't cope with the load.
