If I were to venture a guess I'd say it's power auras just displaying text of your current threat situation on your current target.

It doesn't look like it is actually telling you much except your threat situation on your current target and any threat meter could tell you that. They just display it differently by using something like power auras.

If you could tell me how to do it with powa, cause am trying and is kinda awful to do it. The aggro option of powa only tells if I've the aggro, not a percentage of it like the video, something like "low aggro" or "no aggro".

It would involve using the UnitThreatSituation API to create a set of rules where certain values returned by UnitThreatSituation("player","target") result in displaying of the text on the screen in a given color.

I do not use power auras myself. I'd also question the general value of putting this information on the screen in the first place. Does a tank really have a hard time knowing if what they are currently targeting is aggroed on them? I'd assume you'd have more issue with everything else that you aren't directly targeting.
