      Description

      The --help output for PSMDB 3.6.8 and below list the following for AuditLog:

      Audit Options:
        --auditDestination arg                Output type: enables auditing 
                                              functionality
        --auditFormat arg                     Output format
        --auditFilter arg                     JSON query filter on events, users, 
                                              etc.
        --auditPath arg                       Event destination file path and name 

      Notice that no allowed formats are listed, leaving the user to guess.

      I believe the available formats are (Igor Solodovnikov can confirm):

      1. JSON
      2. BSON

      Please update the --help output to list the available auditLog formats, an example:

      Audit Options:
        --auditDestination arg                Output type: enables auditing 
                                              functionality
        --auditFormat arg                     Output format (JSON or BSON)
        --auditFilter arg                     JSON query filter on events, users, 
                                              etc.
        --auditPath arg                       Event destination file path and name
