Subject: [Snort-users] alert file

everytime i run snort it creates files in /var/log/snort/ directory with
names: log, portscan and lots of other directories with IP names. Why is
it not creating alert or snort.alert file? 
All i can see in log file is bunch of portscans but the directories do
contain some other activities. 
Can anyone tell me where I m making mistake that its not generating alert
file. btw i m running snort 1.7 with following command:
snort -i eth0 -c <rules file> -o -s -d -D

any help is highly appreciated.
