MixingMetering ► Peak markers

Buses and audio tracks have a feature called Peak Markers. A Peak Marker in each audio track or bus moves along in the Clips pane just behind the Now Time cursor displaying the highest peak found during playback. Peak Markers appear in two different colors: one color if the peak is below 0 dB, and a different color if the peak is above 0dB. By default, peaks below 0dB will be green, and peaks above 0dB will be red. Colors for both Peak Markers and their text fields are configurable in Edit > Preferences > Customization - Colors.

Right-click the numeric peak display in the track/bus header strip, and choose Go To Peak from the context menu (see the following figure). Doing so will center the peak location and Now time in the Clips pane. This is useful because a Peak Marker may be offscreen.
