The CPU load depends on the amount of time a web server spends executing a script when a visitor opens a webpage on a particular script-driven site. Static HTML sites use hardly any CPU time, but this isn't the case with the significantly more sophisticated and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more people open this type of a site, the more load shall be produced on the web server and if the database is large, the MySQL server shall be loaded too. An illustration of what could cause high load is an Internet store with a large number of products. If it's popular, lots of people will be browsing it simultaneously and if they seek out items, the whole database containing all of the products will also be frequently accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load statistics will provide you with an idea of how the website is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply just need a more effective hosting solution - if the website is very popular and the existing setup can't cope with the load.
