What is the use of representations?

I have a test suite, in a comoposite test project that managed in git. Everytime I run the test suite, if there  is are new failuures, a set of representations added in to the xmls. And some of these record the test server hostnames whic I do not want to store in the set case xmls.


I recently learnt that by unchecking the "Auto-Create" in Representation tab will stop recording these.


But before doing that just wanted to know, 


what are these representations ?

what use we can have from them geting recorded?

    Good question.

    It seems that even more state-data is persisted in the project.xml file (e.g. lastrun time or some project custom properties)
