IMHO these rules are usefull in identifying specific programs doing the
pinging. My first thought woudl be monitoring applications. I had this when
I began runnign my IPCheck utility on my IDS subnet. The alert was "Delphi
Ping". I used Foundstones "bintext' utility to search for teh text string in
all binaries in the offending server, which picked up the string in my
ipcheck.exe.

Can anyone give me a good definition of what exactly a "ICMP PING 
speedera" is?  Snort on is detecting *many* of these types of pings 
against my web server.  

All activity is originating from different hosts during each scan 
cycle, but the same group of hosts is repeated during each cycle. 
See below for a sample of this activity:
