The Barnyard DB plugin uses the exact same DB structure as the Snort
Database output plugin.  The fact that Barnyard calls it the "Acid" DB
plugin is kind of a misnomer.  So (and I know nothing about Demarc) if
Demarc uses the database structure that snort uses with its DB plugin, then
it is 100% compatible.  The Acid specific tables (acid_event et al.) are not
touched by Barnyard.

>Demarc uses a different database structure than Acid.
