overrev - please explain

Engine

Model: Carrera S, Year:2009, Mileage:2000, Type of use:Street use only
I have read some of the posts on overrevs and have I think I have pieced together what is meant by the term. Nevertheless, it would be great to read a simple explanation. Do overrevs only occur when approaching redline? Will the engine management system actually let you exceed redline (I had an M3 and at redline fuel is cut off to mthe engine)?
