ksysguard FAQs??????

Hi i was wondering if some would be helpful enough to be a little more specific on a couple things in ksysguard
theDocumentation for it isnt very good

Name The name of the executable that started the process.
PID The Process ID. A unique number for each process.
PPID The Process ID of the process parent.
UID The ID of the user that started the process.
GID The ID of the group the process belongs to.
Status The process status.
User% The processor load of the process in user space (in percent).
System% The processor load of the process in system space (in percent).
Nice The scheduling priority.
VmSize The total amount of virtual memory used by the process (in kBytes).
VmRss The total amount of physical memory used by the process (in kBytes).
Login The login name of the user that started the process.
Command The complete start command of the process.

Underneath the table you find four buttons which will be described now from left to right.
um i hope someone knows a fair bit about ksysguard
i couldnt find much info about it
Whats the difference between User% and System%?
What do the do some of the different status' mean? Disk Sleep, Sleeping , running
What do all/some the "send signal" sig's mean? SIGterm SIGkill SIGhup SIGfpe etc
Is there anyway to use ksysguard to dtermine what program is hogging an IDE/ IO bus causing severe slowdowns?

Nice is priority , +ve = nice and polite waits turn to use CPU
-ve = selfish bastard i want to eat your CPU noone else can have any

conclusion why on earth dont they change the notation for
VmRss = physical Memory used omgwtf? i would have never guessed that in a million years please change it KDE developers for the sack of Ex windows Taskmanager users.
VmSize = reasonable

Thanks for reading my post

and any help if applicable :P
