Answer

The "tim_txcrd_z "(Time TX Credit Zero (2.5Us ticks))parameter in the "portstatshow" command output means the following:
 
The number of times that the port was unable to transmit frames because the transmit BB (buffer-to-buffer)credit was zero. The purpose of this statistic is to detect congestion or a device affected by latency. This parameter is sampled at intervals of 2.5 microseconds, and the counter is incremented if the condition is true. Each sample represents 2.5 microseconds of time with zero Tx BB Credit. An increment of this counter means that the frames could not be sent to the attached device for 2.5 microseconds, indicating degraded performance.
