Snort reports on ALL the traffic that it saw, so it's a pretty good
representation of your network traffic.  ACID reports on only what it
has in its database, so the percentages are a representation of the
type of traffic that caused the alerts.  So even if UDP makes up only
1% of your traffic, it's entirely possible that it is causing 80% of
all of your alerts, especially with the default snort config files.  I
suspect SNMP rules, if you are doing any sort of network monitoring.
