[Snort-devel] Snort 2.6 USR1 Stats

Hi All,

I was looking at the statistics that Snort gives on receipt of the USR1
signal. I thought some of the figures looked a bit strange, especially the
"Outstanding Packets" (much higher than expected).

I was looking at the code, in particular this commit

http://cvs.snort.org/viewcvs.cgi/snort/src/util.c.diff?r1=1.75&r2=1.76

I'm puzzled by the fact that we keep on adding the number of
packets received to ps_total

ps_total += ps.ps_recv;

Am I missing something here ?

Mark
