One more question then:
Can I use Snort with oracle and get ACID to pull from it?

ACID cannot pull from multiple database servers.  Currently, queries
can only be executed against on database at a time.

Possible hacks include: 

* configuring Snort to log to both the local database and a central

 + Pro: happens automatically
 - Con: could slow down Snort's detection functionality
 - Con: data cannot cross administrative domains

* archive alerts from the 6 databases into a common database

 - Con: aggregation requires manual intervention

* custom scripts to perform equivalent of archiving

 + Pro: happens automatically
 + Pro: no degradation in Snort detection performance
 - Con: no such scripts exist
