Ghost_record_count is count of Rows in the leaf level of an index that has been marked for deletion, but has not yet been deleted by the database engine.
KILL/ROLLBACK - If a rollback is in progress for a specific SPID, the cmd column in the sp_who result set for that SPID will indicate KILLED/ROLLBACK.
