If you want to reorganize directories and file extents on /torser01/imail/msgfiles/tier2/11 which is a VxFS (Veritas filesystem), setting a time limit of 1 hour - yes, that's correct.

Directories will be reorganized (reordered, compacted) first, then files will be defragmented.

You could add -D and -E to get before/after reports on directory and file defragmentation.
