Hi Mitchell

Beside google - I can recommend you to go to www.giac.org and look at students practicals for Intrusion detection. 
There are hundreds of reports that are based on a standard method for analyzing network traffic with focus on IDS. 
(http://www.giac.org/GCIA.php)
The GCIA is for GIAC Certified Intrusion Analysts (GCIA). There are also other kinds of reports for firewall, Unix, 
Windows, etc.


Worth reading.

Your best bet is to google for specific intrusions and see how others
react.  In general, after you have been in your job a while you will
become accustomed to seeing the same intrusions directed to the same
servers/IP ranges.  After time you will have a better idea of which are
false positives and which you aren't vulnerable to anyway. 

You just have to get acclimated to your network patterns.  If you can
google your way through the first month you'll be fine.
