In a shared server , the web space is shared between all the users on the server.If any one particular user is using too much CPU usage, this may lead to excessive server loads  and for the other users on the server.

CPU Usage basically is used to know  how much of the allocated CPU resources to the account is currently using. And if CPU reaches 100% it simply means that the account is using all of the CPU resources allocated,so if there is any new processes, it will be put in queue until existing processes are completed which may cause the website to slow down dramatically and even there can  be time out error.

Consistently going over your CPU usage limits may result in a warning email being dispatched from your shared website hosting server, or possibly a temporary account suspension if the usage is severe enough. So it's always good to be aware of what levels of usage your account is at.In this context we will have a look at the steps to calculate cpu usage in cpanel.
