The lower pane contains three tabs which present additional information about the selected rows in the upper pane:
NOTE: The terms “conversation,” “stream,” and “flow” are synonymous. For example, the end-to-end IP address and UDP or TCP ports form a unique conversation, stream, or flow for a given application.
