 FreeBSD Process Management > Introduction to Process Management
The process structure contains information that must always remain resident in main memory, along with references to other structures that remain resident, whereas the user structure contains information that needs to be resident only when the process is executing (although user structures of other processes also may be resident).
Process structures are allocated dynamically as part of process creation and are freed as part of process exit.
Processes that execute for the duration of their slice have their priority lowered, whereas processes that give up the CPU (usually because they do I/O) are allowed to remain at their priority.
