Ver 3.19 M1 release Transfers tab/ window operation

Is the transfers tab or window a log of transfers uploads and downloads or just diagnostic tool to view it progress?

If it is a log it surely doesn't work. So My guess isit a diagnostic viewing window for large transfers.

It is definitely more diagnostic than log.
If you watch your progress and catch a unit JUST being completed,
you can switch to the transfers tab and see the transfer happening.
Once it's done, the entry on that tab goes away.

It's not quite a "pending" transfer list, either.
It's more like a "transferring now" list.

Then I was correct in my assumption that you have to transfer a large workunit or units catch this or use a dailup connection, not a broadband.

It is possible to catch on broadband. The predictor WUs transfer about a dozen files each, and the latency between files keeps the list there for a minute or two even with a T1 connection.

The other reason that a file would be here is if the server is down, and there was a data transfer to that server that should have happened. There is a bug in this code, as the transfer is labeled as 100% complete even though it is 0% complete.
