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

jrodman recently posted an interesting blog going into detail on metrics.log. Check it out here: http://blogs.splunk.com/2010/08/13/some-details-on-metrics-log-data-format-utility/
Thanks saw the blog but I don't think cumulative_hits was defined. It did have other interesting details .
