Direct audit logs to a file

Is there an easy, documented way to enable audit logging to a file instead of the database? I've read the Admin guide around auditing, but apart from actually enabling logging in the global-properties file, I've found nothing to help accomplish this. All of the documentation is gear towards java developers, which I'm not, instead of Systems Admins. Basically what I want to do is get the audit logs into files to forward to a Splunk indexer. There are basically two articles on the whole internet that talk about something similar, but they don't say exactly how they enabled it. The closest I've come to find is here [1].
