Question What does peak voltage tell?

i have a question regarding the peak voltage testing which i haven't done so far
normally i use resistance as the measurement to check my stator, ignition coils and pulse generator in my Fireblade. it clearly shows the coil resistance as well as the coil short circuit or open circuit. once i had a bad pulse generator which went open circuit randomly. so with the multimeter i could diagnose that error and replaced it with a good one so the resistance reading helped in that situation.

but in my manual it advises us to perform a peak voltage test apart from that resistance test. it applies for both the ignition coil primary side and the pickup coil. it says reading should be 100V or above for the ignition coil primary side and 0.9V or obove for the pickup coil. it seems that we have to have a special adapter for our multimeter to perform these two tests. i googled and found some information but didn't find a good explanation.

so my questions are,

1) what does the peak voltage reading tell us about the ignition coil primary side and the pickup coil? now i'm aware of performing these two tests but i'm not clear what that reading tells. specially in that ignition coil primary side test.
2) to rule out any problem do i need to perform both the resistance and the peak voltage tests? isn't the resistance test enough?

thank you.

This should show the reasoning behind using the PVA ,easier to do it this way as I'm a one finger typist
Also here's one I made earlier
