You can (should?) use the same DB to log all your sensors's alerts. I use
to do that, it works fine. You also can set up a special name for each of
you snort instance that will be used in the DB to identify each sensor. By
default, it will be printed out like "ip_address_or_sensor_hostname:nic_id"
on the DB.

You can specify a id name for your sensor by adding the parameter
sensor_name on your snort.conf file :

output database: log, mysql, dbname=snort user=jed host=localhost
password=xyz sensor_name=lan_sensor
