I believe that would be a section in the snort.conf file for stream4:

preprocessor sream4:  keepstats

Hello all,

  I recently switched from 1.8.3 to 1.8.6 and I'm running into a problem.
With 1.8.3 I was able to use the -b flag and also have snort create a
directory with the attacking IP's name and log the packet. Now when I run
snort with the -b flag I no longer get the packet logged to the directory.
In fact the directory is not created at all. If I simply take away the -b
flag things work as expected. 
  I'm using snort to monitor a honeypot so I'm trying to grab as much info
as possible, is this combination of features no longer supported?

Please CC me any responses because I am not on the list.
