[Snort-users] Mult snort instances and portscan logging

Just an Idea here but could not the DB plugin support from snort be ported
over to Barnyard?  It would be nice if the Snort DB plugin could be made
into a portable module that could be built into other apps off the shelf.
Tom Liston's Labrea could make use of this for logging into a snort DB.
Then Labrea activity could be viewable in ACID.  I am sure other utils could
benifit from this as well.

Barnyard does not support reading the portscan logs at this time.  There
is work being done on an updated portscan detector that will output data
capable of being read by barnyard.

Postgres support is currently being worked on for the barnyard database
output plugin.  MS SQL support will be included in the future, but that
may take some time.
