portscan2 is snort's next generation portscan detection preprocessor.  
It allows you to configure configure the max number of hosts and/or 
ports that a portscanner can hit before it is alerted on.  The 
parameters are:

scanners_max - max number of potential portscanners that snort will 
track in the tree
targets_max - max number of different targets that snort will track (I 
think that this is per portscanner, but I forget)
target_limit - max targets a portscanner can hit before an alert is sent
port_limit - max ports that a portscanner can hit before an alert is 
sent - the port count is a sum of the ports from all hosts (very cool)
timeout - the portscanner's inactivity timeout - portscanner's will be 
removed from the tree if this value is hit
log - portscan2 has its own log

Here are the default values:
#define DEFAULT_TIMEOUT      60
