Acquire/Average mode algorithm

Trying to use the Averaging mode Acquisition with MSO 7054B and didn't find in scope manual a detailed description of the algorithm and parameters used for averaging: what is the formula of any point on the screen after triger? Probaly linear An(i) = An-1(i) + [Xn(i) - An-1(i)]/n is used and switched sometime to exponential (what equation).
Avgs parameter definition also confuses me. Help says : "number of triggers to be averaged together" while remote ref guide says:
"The COUNt value determines the number of averages that must be acquired."
What exactly means "Averages" above? - either display points or triggers? How the acquision restart after Count is reached?
How can we estimate the averaging time vs. triger period?
Will somebody please point me to a relevant material?
