What is the significance of cumulative_hits below? Search match hits? number of events returned from a search?

In group=pipeline in metrics.log, cumulative_hits is the number of times the given index-time processor (in this case sendout in the exec pipeline) has been executed since splunkd was last restarted.

Thanks saw the blog but I don't think cumulative_hits was defined. It did have other interesting details .
