The CPU load depends on the time period a server spends executing a script when a visitor opens a page on a certain script-driven website. Static HTML Internet sites use hardly any CPU time, but this is not the case with the considerably more complex and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more clients open this kind of an Internet site, the more load shall be produced on the hosting 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 a huge number of products. If it is popular, a lot of people shall be exploring it at the same time and if they seek out items, the entire database containing 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 statistics will give you an idea of how the website is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you just need a more potent website hosting solution - if the site is extremely popular and the established setup cannot cope with the load.
