The CPU load depends upon the time a server spends executing a script when a visitor opens a page on a particular script-driven Internet site. Static HTML sites use hardly any CPU time, but this is not the situation with the considerably more sophisticated and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more people open such a website, the more load shall be created on the web server and if the database is large, the MySQL server shall be loaded as well. An example of what can cause high load is an online store with a huge number of products. If it is popular, a lot of people will be browsing it concurrently and if they look for items, the whole database which contains all of the products shall also be frequently accessed by the script, which will result 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 needs to be optimized or if you just need a more powerful web hosting solution - if the Internet site is really popular and the current setup cannot cope with the load.
