Screenshots

In alphabetical order of appearance:

Boost Memory Usage
Memory Usage of the boost process. The statistics are updated after each boost run, depending on your local settings for BOOST.

Boost Runtime
Shows the total runtime of the boost process.

Boost Updates
Shows the number of RRD Updates performed by Boost.

Number of DS and RRDs
Number of Data Sources handled by the Cacti Poller Process. When not using BOOST, the number of RRDs will show up. When using BOOST, the number of RRDs will always be 0 because the poller itself does not perform the updates anymore. See Boost statistics above for the number of rrd updates, then.

Poller Hosts
The number of polled hosts, hosts per polling process (spine only), number of data sources (same as above) and number of rrd files updated (when not using boost).

Poller Items Distribution
Show the number of Scripts, Script Server Scripts and SNMP Items that are queried by the poller. This information is useful when searching for performance bottlenecks. SNMP items are fastest.

Poller Recaching Statistics
In case cacti discovers a recache event (e.g. number of interfaces changed), this graph will show the effect: Number of recaching events and recache runtime is shown here.

Poller Runtime Statistics
Perhaps the most wanted information: How long does the cacti poller run!

Export Duration
Duration of export process

Number of Exported Graphs
Number of exported graphs
