The CPU load depends on the amount of time a server spends executing a script every time a visitor opens a page on a given script-driven website. Static HTML sites use hardly any CPU time, but this is not so with the significantly more advanced and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more individuals open this type of a site, the more load shall be produced on the server and if the database is very large, the MySQL server will be loaded too. An example of what could cause high load is a web-based store with tens of thousands of products. If it is popular, lots of people will be exploring it concurrently and if they search for items, the entire database that contains all the products will also be continuously 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 Internet site is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you just need a more effective web hosting solution - if the site is really popular and the existing setup cannot deal with the load.
