it appears that that rule has in-rule thresholding (detection_filter:track 
by_src, count 10, seconds 60;) and you are trying to threshold it again in 
threshold.conf?? you cannot threshold already thresholded rules... if you want 
to threshold it in threshold.conf, you have to remove the thresholding from the 
rule itself...
