ADA4500 understanding load capacitance effects

Hello,

 

I'm using the ada4500 in a product design and have a questions regarding how load capacitance effects the part.  Could someone explain what exactly figure 37 in the data sheet means?  What is small signal overshoot and how do I apply that graph to an actual load capacitance.  How does that tie into the stability of the amp etc...  I don't understand how to use the information provided in that plot. 

 

I'm looking at driving a 100pF cap to support ADC input channels and am not sure if I need small series resistors to prevent performance degradation. 

 

Here is the plot:
