I just upgraded to the current version of Snort. Now, I am getting multiple
Http_Inspect Alerts. Most of the payloads look like normal web traffic. My
previous version of snort didn't have the HTTP_Insepct Preprocessor. So, I
am a little confused on the importance of the Http_Inspect and it's
configuration.  Here are my questions. 

1. Why are there so many alerts on normal traffic?

2. Is this preprocessor necessary?

3. Do I have to configure the preprocessor for every web server we run, or
will the default settings be OK. 

4. Is it unwise to turn if off?


I have read through the Documentation from SNORT on this preprocessor and
still can't seem to answer my questions.
