The CPU load depends upon the time a hosting server spends executing a script any time a visitor opens a page on a particular script-driven site. Static HTML sites use hardly any CPU time, but it is not so with the far more advanced and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more customers open such a site, the more load shall be created on the server and if the database is very large, the MySQL server will be loaded also. A good example of what could cause high load is an online store with a large number of products. If it is popular, a lot of people will be visiting it simultaneously and if they seek out items, the entire database which 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 statistics will give you an idea of how the website is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply just need a more efficient hosting solution - if the website is very popular and the existing setup can't handle the load.

Comparing these numbers to the website visitor data will tell you if your sites perform the way they have to or if they require some optimization, that'll improve their efficiency and the overall visitor experience.
