How does the CIM Data Model Acceleration Earliest Time vs Summary Range differ from each other?

Path Finder

Having trouble wrapping my head around the various "times" associated with data model acceleration. In the CIM setup, you have "Earliest Time" which the docs define as "How far back in time the Splunk platform keeps these column stores, specified as a relative time string."

Summary range is described in the docs as "Data model acceleration summary ranges span an approximate range of time. At times, a data model acceleration summary can have a store of data that slightly exceeds its summary range, but the summary never fails to meet that range, except during the period when it is first being built."

How do these two differ, play together, etc?
