Spartan TCSLIP what is it?

So I have had my spartan set up for about a month now and love it. Im no mechanic and dont know jack about jack! Ive read a lot and figured out most of what I need to know. The one thing Im not sure on is tcslip?? What is that Im assuming is torque converter slip but what does it mean? Mine ranges from 0 -1000 plus. I cant really get a feel for why it is what it is. Sometimes its really high and sometimes its really low I cant get a grip on any pattern.
Can you guys with more knowledge help me out.
by the way spartan is the real deal. I love driving my psd now. Been running the 275 updated tune now and love the way it shifts. Might wear out my truck soon but man is it fun.

Going through the gears, its going to be really high. Once the converter locks up, it should stay below 10 RPM most of the time....if its getting over 10 then its probaly slipping a little bit. 500+ horsepower and 1000+ ft lbs of torque is stressful on a stock converter. I haven't seen mine go out yet though....I have seen 75-85 RPM with the 310 tune over 10,000 miles ago. Truck is still going and putting down plenty of power.
