Splunk Search

Splukn audit.log file fields

Explorer

Is the Splunk audit log format or the description of each field in the audit.log file documented somewhere?
I'm interested in the log entries that have to do with the search executed and the results from the search. I see the entries in the audit.log file, but would like to understand what all the fields mean.

I found this document helpful, section 30.5.1 Understanding the Audit Logs:
