The CPU load depends on the time period a hosting server spends executing a script every time a visitor opens a webpage on a given script-driven website. Static HTML Internet sites use hardly any CPU time, but it is not so with the considerably more advanced and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more people open this sort of a site, the more load will be produced on the server and if the database is very 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's popular, a lot of people shall be exploring it concurrently and if they seek out items, the whole 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 data will offer you an idea of how the website is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you simply just need a more potent website hosting solution - if the site is extremely popular and the existing setup can't handle the load.
