[Oisf-users] Description of Suricata Statistics

Well I was really looking for  complete description of all of the statistics.  2 reasons, one is a sanity check to verify that what I think I know I really do know, two is to understand the ones I don't know.  My purpose here is to see if I can come up with a method to create a score that tells me the health of the instance.  I have 150 sensors and I would like to focus on the least healthy sensors.  To that end, having a sound understanding of the values will be really helpful.

If you want to just dump a list of the ones you don't understand I'll do
my best to explain them.  And I'm sure I'll be corrected if/when I make
