I updated the rules (free VRT) last Friday and didn't look at the alerts until today.  I've received 158,000 alerts for http_inspect: UNKNOWN METHOD.  SID is 119-31. alert ( msg: "HI_CLIENT_UNKNOWN_METHOD"; sid: 31; gid: 119; rev: 1; metadata: rule-type preproc ; classtype:unknown; )

I don't see a reason for this, and I can put a threshold on this rule, but is anyone else seeing the same kind of alerts within the past few days?
