That was a result file, what your computer would upload to the project. Any <gaussian>, <pulse>, <spike>, or <triplet> section is a signal good enough to save in the science database. Links from the Glossary of terms explain what those signals are. A <best_spike> signal is the single best spike found even if it's not good enough for the database, same for other best_ signals. They give the Validator something with which to compare the results from two computers even for WUs with no good signals.
