[Snort-users] global threshold

I have the following threshold set in threshold.conf:

threshold gen_id 0, sig_id 0, type both, track by_src, count 5, seconds

My interpretation of the above is 
each given host can only trigger one alert per rule per 60 seconds, but
only if we exceed 5 events per rule in 60 seconds

However, it seems to me that it only log 1 alert and once the threshold
and limit is reached, the rest of the events are being ignored within
that 60 seconds.  And that only 1 alert among all rules is being
triggered.  Can anyone please tell me if it's possible to achieve my
interpretation.  If so, how?

Thanks in advance,
