Re: Tagged packets alerts

Getting an alert on a "tagged" packet with a rule without "tag" as an option means that your rule is firing on a stream 
reassembled packet. (as opposed to a single packet)

I am getting tagged packets alerts for rules that *do not* include the 'tag' directive such as on sid:16313.   

Also am getting tagged packets alerts for so_rules like sid:13824.  I understand why this could be occurring -- the 
compiled so_rule including the 'tag' directive and is not something that can be manipulated.

I would really like to disable tagged packets alerts in their entirety; don't need them since we perform full packet 
captures to disc.  Already performing a global search and replace on all non-so_rules that come with 'tag' to 
eliminate the tag directive.

Background:
   snort v2.8.6.3, outputting to log_unified, alert_unified, barnyard to BASE.

Any thoughts or ideas?
