    man ps, should explain what are those means.

    PROCESS STATE CODES
    D uninterruptible sleep (usually IO)
    R runnable (on run queue)
    S sleeping
    T traced or stopped
    Z a defunct ("zombie") process

    For BSD formats and when the "stat" keyword is used, addi-
    tional letters may be displayed:
    W has no resident pages
    < high-priority process
    N low-priority task
    L has pages locked into memory (for real-time and custom IO)

    What does 'S' 'R' 'SN' 'TN' means? Can anyone please help me understand.

    S = Sleeping process
    R = Runnable
    SN = Sleeping Low-Priorty Process
    TN = Stopped Low-Priority task

    hopes its helps
