Yeah, accidentally pasted twice. Thanks, that explains it perfectly.

I think you pasted the same thing twice.

 

Dynamic rules, as listed below, are the "Activate/Dynamic" rules.  not
the SO rules.  Therefore, if you don't have Dynamic rules, it will
always read 0.  VRT ships zero Dynamic rules.  So, if you are running
the VRT ruleset, you will have 0 there.

 

Matter of fact, I don't think anyone ships dynamic rules.  I don't know
anyone that uses them.  (Not saying there isn't, I've just never ran
across them)

So, what you're getting at is the Dynamic rules will always show zero.
Is there a real way to tell if they were loaded? Or is that what
commenting out the stub rules(so_rules) does?

Andy,

 

Just talked to someone in dev.  The "Dynamic Rules" are the
'activate/dynamic' kind.  Which are not the Shared Object kind.  

 

But to your below point, comment out the stub rules in your snort.conf.
The lines you have that use "SORULE_PATH"
