What you are seeing here are the headers that Apache logged for you.
What a GIDS sees is the entire packet coming into the system: headers,
payload, and all!!! Much much more than what Apache has logged for your
here. That is why a GIDS can do something about the hostile traffic
coming in. It sees the payload of the packets, matches it against it's
ruleset of alerts and actions, and then deals with the packet as
instructed. Let me know if you want a clearer explanation with examples.
