Hi, This afternoon after updating my bleeding rules I got the above
error when restarting snort with the new rules.

I am using most of the standard snort rules and a lot of the bleeding
rules too.

I guess this means that there is a limit to the number of Flowbit rules
one can load at any time and that I have just exceeded it.

-bash-3.00$ snort -V

Any thought on where to go from here?
