From your description, it is most likely generated by Daysim. If you check the header file there is a field to set the units for the output. If the values are illuminance then the unit is lux. Each value is the value for a sensor at a calculation timestep.

Thanks for the answer but there's no description in the head of the file or in the head file.

But what i can say it's - there is one value per sensors (but i don't know what kind of value) - theres is one value per hour
