[Snort-users] A Query about dropped packets

Hi all,

I am running Snort on openBSD 2.9.
I keep getting packets and when i terminate it gives some statistics
which include

"Snort analyzed 1716 out of 2979 packets, dropping 1263(42.397%)

Does this mean snort is dropping packets or does it mean that Snort
analysed only 1716 ?
In the latter case what is the filter used to filter 1716 out of 2979
packets and drop the rest ?

Is this because there is something wrong in the configuration ?

Any pointers is welcome.

thanks a lot
