I'm writing a program to process lines in Snort's Fast Alert Log. However, 
I can't decipher several of the fields.

Here's a typical log entry:

03/03-22:06:32.396957  [**] [1:300001:1] Service Hunt [**] [Classification: 
Misc activity] [Priority: 3] {TCP} xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:40144 -> 

Can someone tell me what information can appear in the two fields 
containing asterisks? In my logs I find no entry in which they contain 
anything else.

And, can someone tell me the meaning of the number preceding the sid 
(3000001) and rule revision number?
