Sorry I wasn't clear:
I think that logging into a txt file is faster
then logging into a MySQL/Postgres database.
But then, when the database increases and you want to do a big
in the MySQL/Postgres database, this takes a lot of system performance.
Then (I don't now how Snort handles this) it could be possible that
Snort droppes some packets, or MySQL 'crashes' and Snort can't log into
That's what I wanted to tell.
I hope it's clear now, just mail me if it isn't.
