In brief: Prediction
It is a test that predicts the likelihood of blockages in the arteries.
It can also be used for assessment of exercise tolerance or to exclude exercise induced abnormal heart rhythms.

In brief: Several things
It's a screening test to look for any concerning ischemic changes(that represent poor blood flow to particular regions of the heart) but also serves to look for conduction abnormalities that would include inappropriate heart rate or rhythm responses to increased work load.
