Answer:

APM does not have the document which explained the page.

Please refer to the following explanation.

View Tim Status :
TIM will be split into a “hub” process and several “worker” processes.
Client IP address space will be partitioned, with each worker process will handling one subset. 

View Tim Packet Statistics:
Captured:
   number of packets received on that logical port.

Dropped:
   number of packets dropped.

Forwarded:
   number of packets forwarded to TIM.

No Space:
   indicates packets dropped because nqcapd could not write them out to the /nqtmp/tim folder because this folder was full. 

Too Short:
   means packet could not be analyzed because it was truncated. 

Too Old:
   means that the TIM engine would not process the packet because its timestamp is too old.

Analyzed:
   number of packets analyzed.

Bytes Analyzed:
   number of packets bytes analyzed.
