If, by "There are probably a few quirks but its the same format" you're referring to the incompatible database schemas in use, then
yes, it's the same.

Demarc uses a different database structure than Acid.

The comments for the Acid output plugin in the barnyard.conf file state:
"Used to output data into the db schema used by ACID"

While I have not actually verified this, I assume it's referring to Acid's schema, and not some generic schema.  Because of this,
the writes would fail, looking for tables such as "acid_event", etc.  These don't exist in a Demarc schema'd database, so, well you
get my point.

If, on the other hand, this output plugin writes to the generic snort tables present in both Acid and Demarc, then that's a
different story.  Again, I'm going to assume that "Used to output data into the db schema used by ACID" means just that.  If this is
not the case, then I suggest that someone either correct the comments in barnyard.conf, or rename the plugin.

Anyway, I'm just trying to verify where this plugin actually writes to (db tables) without having to install, configure and run it

Thanks for your help.
