[Snort-users] Oracle Database Table Explanation

I solved this issue and here is what happened.

When an event happens I would get a message saying database: oracle_error:
ORA-10401: inserted value too large for column.

The create_oracle file creates and event table with a timestamp field that
is varchar2(24).  For some reason this is too small.  The reason I say "for
some reason" is the fact that I have it working and counted the characters
and it only has 24.  So, I increased the size to 30, which is to big but it
fixes the problem.  I'm going to resize the field to 25 and see if that is
the number.  I'm also going to have my DBA go through the create_oracle and
see if we can improve on it.

I also have notes on compiling snort on a Solaris for Intel box.  I'm going
to write them up and see if I can't get them added to the site.

Any chance that the permission on the "event" table do not
have INSERT priviledge for the snort db user?

Are there any error messages generated by Snort?

Try recompiling Snort in DEBUG mode to get extra diagnostics
to see where the logging is failing.
(i.e. make clean; make  "-DDEBUG")
