Sounds more like a feature request to me.   What about those of us that need it to fail if it can't connect to the database?

Subject: [Snort-devel] BUG : Databases output module


There is something i'd like to report as a bug.
I use Mysql output module to log into a remote mysql/ACID database.
Where starting snort, if the database server is not available, the program
I think it is because database output module exits if it is unable to

!! I think it should not make snort startup fail !!

I'd like to know if it is possible to make db output module report the error
and let snort startup continue ?
Can this output module retry to connect later or send error messages...
