Hmm, well the comments inside of src/preprocessors/perf-base.c seem to 
be a little misleading?

---SNIP--
/*
  *
  *   Log Base Per Stats to File for Use by the MC
  *
  * unixtime(in secs since epoch)
  * %pkts dropped
  * mbits/sec (wire)
  * alerts/sec
---SNIP---

Also I don't think any of this is in the users manual for some reason, I 
think that would be a great addition. Pig Doktah looks pretty cool, I'll 
definitely be playing with it.

Thanks!
