That means that the receiving end of the connection is able to pass the
data from the tcp-buffers to the application quickly enough to not fill
up the tcp receive buffers. Which is a good thing :-) When the "TCP
window size" line start to come closer to the "Segment Transmitted"
line, then you know the receiving end has difficulty processing the
received data in a timely manner.
