The CPU load is dependent upon the length of time a web server spends executing a script every time a visitor opens a webpage on a particular script-driven site. Static HTML websites use barely any CPU time, but this isn't so with the far more complex and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more clients open this sort of a website, the more load shall be created on the hosting server and if the database is very large, the MySQL server shall be loaded also. An illustration of what can cause high load is a web-based store with tens of thousands of products. If it's popular, lots of people shall be exploring it concurrently and if they look for items, the entire database that contains all the products will also be continuously accessed by the script, resulting 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 needs to be optimized or if you just need a more potent hosting solution - if the site is very popular and the established setup cannot cope with the load.

The CPU load data include the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, as well as the amount of system memory they used. You may also see what processes generated the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, etc. The MySQL load data section will show you the number of queries to each individual database you have created inside your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account in general and the standard hourly rate. Comparing these statistics to the website visitor data will tell you if your websites perform the way they should or if they require some optimization, which will improve their overall performance and the overall site visitor experience.
