First off what is the sid-msg.map used for? I looked in my oinkmaster config

multiple rules directories so that the GID 3 rules are included in the 
sid-msg.map but time has been very short with a new paying gig that i've 
found... 12 hour days of driving do not leave much for network security related 
work :? :(
