The CPU load depends on the time a server spends executing a script each time a visitor opens a webpage on a specific script-driven website. Static HTML sites use hardly any CPU time, but this is not the case with the considerably more sophisticated and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more individuals open such a website, the more load shall be generated on the web server and if the database is very large, the MySQL server shall be loaded also. An example of what may cause high load is a web-based store with a large number of products. If it's popular, lots of people shall be exploring it concurrently and if they look for items, the whole database that contains all of the products will also be constantly accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load data will give you an idea of how the Internet site is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you simply need a more effective website hosting solution - if the website is really popular and the current setup can't deal with the load.
