Question About iftop network analyzer software


Hello;

I couldn't understand somethings in iftop

http://www.ex-parrot.com/pdw/iftop/iftop_normal.png

there are three column's on the right. Why there are three columns? What are them? I'd like to say total - upload - download but they are obviously not.

What are TX, RX and cumm means ?

What are TX, RX and cumm means ?
top right corner,, 2,10 and 40 second intervals
TX - transmitting
RX - receiving
cumm - cummulative

Code:
man iftop
tells all
