Diffrencess between ksyms & System.map files

Hello All,
  I wanted to know the difference between the ksyms & System.map files.

I know that the ksyms file is the file containing kernel symbol tables.
And if we add a new module into the kernel the ksyms file is altered
by including the functions of the new module that can be used along with
the address.

I wanted to know what is the System.map file contains, and also more about
ksyms file.

If any one of you can [please] send a pointer to some link it will be very
