Interpretation of likelihood result in CosmoMC

I have used the Planck likelihood with CosmoMC, following the step of this website (http://cosmologist.info/cosmomc/readme_planck.html
Code: Select all
mpirun -np 1 ./cosmomc test_planck.ini
and get the result as following:
Test likelihoods done, total logLike, chi-eq = 5859.141 11718.281
Does "total logLike" refer to -2*ln(Likelihood) ?
and what does "chi-eq" refer to ?

Loglike is -ln(Likelihood) and chi-sq = -2ln(Likelihood).
