Is the question "which specific rule was triggered by a specific
event" ie: alert?

cd /wherever_your_snort_rules_are/
grep 'insert_phrase_from_alert' *

To wit:

[**] [1:0:0] TCP inbound to 80 http [**]
[Priority: 0]
04/21/03-18:07:00.234228 ->
TCP TTL:120 TOS:0x0 ID:14681 IpLen:20 DgmLen:48 DF
******S* Seq: 0xDEEB0032  Ack: 0x0  Win: 0x2238  TcpLen: 28
TCP Options (4) => MSS: 1460 NOP NOP SackOK

[toot at ...8592... /storage/snort]$ grep 'inbound to 80' *
tcp191-local.rules:alert tcp $EXTERNAL_NET any -> $HOME_NET 80
 (msg:"TCP inbound to 80 http";)
