Navigator for I Documentation - PDI

We needs a description for the functions of the Navigator for i.
We are looking for informations about the analysis of the perfomance data.
Someone have done a good job and create all the charts und overviews.
But we need a little bit more information about the fields in the charts.

Use Case:

The chart "Wartezeiten nach Job oder Task" contains these fields:
"Belegungskonfliktzeiten", "Zeit des abnormalen Koflikts", "Anzahl der zugeteilten CPU", "Anzahl Plattenspeicherplatzbelegungskonflikte" oder " Anzahl Platten-OPSTART-Konflikte"
What does it mean?
