However, with that many warnings you will soon start to ignore them
totally.  Most of them are probably your slice of port scans from
compromised machines anyway...

I run logcheck so that I see things every hour, filtering out all of
the stuff that is obviously likely to be crap (like port 80).  I also
use scripts to summarize common source addresses and destination ports
(and to spot port scans) from the log file(s).

If anyone is interested, the scripts I use are home-grown and are
available via:

peace & happiness,
