Rename 'Current Transfers' to 'Current Active Transfers'

When file transfers are going on, and the Instana UI is in live mode, the 'Current Transfers' metric on the 'IBM MQ MFT Coordination Queue Manager' dashboard always remains '0' (see the yellow highlight on the screen shot). On the other hand, the 'Current Transfers' table (highlighted in green) is getting updated with the current transfers.
Apparently the 'Current Transfers' corresponds to the number of ACTIVE transfers. I have seen it being '1' for a short period of time because the file transfer completed very quickly. But, it is somewhat misleading that the chart on the same dashboard gives the impression that a transfer is going on, and that the 'Current Transfers' table also shows a transfer, but 'Current Transfers' is zero all the time. Perhaps the metric should be renamed to 'Current active transfers' in order to prevent confusion.

At the same time, could we rename the 'Current Transfers' table perhaps to 'Recent Transfers'?
