What is cessation oriented Insight?

Please tell me if you know what it is, apparently it is known as one of the three types of insight, the others being path and fruition oriented ones.

"The statements; 'With the remainderless stopping & fading of the six contact-media is it the case that there is anything else?' '.. is it the case that there is not anything else .. is it the case that there both is & is not anything else .. is it the case that there neither is nor is not anything else?' objectify non-objectification. However far the six contact-media go, that is how far objectification goes."

It's apparently connected with whether the approach is from serenity or insight, or both:

31. (vi) How does its attainment come about? It comes about in one who performs
the preparatory tasks by striving with serenity and insight and causes the
cessation of [consciousness belonging to] the base consisting of neither
perception nor non-perception. One who strives with serenity alone reaches the
base consisting of neither perception nor non-perception and remains there, while
one who strives with insight alone reaches the attainment of fruition and remains
there. But it is one who strives with both, and after performing the preparatory tasks,
causes the cessation of [consciousness belonging to] the base consisting of neither
perception nor non-perception, who attains it. This is in brief."---Vism. XXIII, 31
