[Snort-users] Acid Issues with snort

Yes indeed, still having problems with the graphing and the AG stuff and no
solutions or feedback.  As for getting the archive thing to work...I had to
resort to getting the latest PHP (being a while back) the version happens to
be PHP4-200208211200 with Acid 0.9.6b21 and mySQL 3.23.51.  Just recently I
updated to Snort 1.90 and used the create_mysql source script from the
contrib directory and this produced schema 106, but the AG and Graphing
still does not work.  I am waiting on the full release of ACID 0.9.6b22 in
hopes that many of these issue will be addressed...but I am not holding my
So, by getting these releases, you will most likely be forced to do what I
did and drop all the exisiting databases and recreate them with the new
builds.  Lots of work unfortunately.  According to rumors, the schema 106 is
supposed to allow snort to work around the duplicate sid/cid issue when
integrating with ACID...perhaps if this is the case...wonder if the older
versions of ACID might work with new schema ???  If memory serves me, ACID
0.9.13b had the archive problem but the graphing and AG maintenance
worked....something to think about

I've seen this graphing behavior and have been bitching about it constantly
for months, but I've seen very little feedback - and no real resolutions -
on this or the snort-devel list.  At this point, I suspect the developers
know of the problem and don't know how to fix it, given the severe lack of
responses and documentation.
By the way, how did you fix the duplicate events/alerts problem?  I have
ACID 0.9.6b21 as well and see the problem daily.  I have literally hundreds
of events that can't be archived because they're "duplicate", but looking in
the database there are no duplicates, but there are other events that
somehow got the same sid:cid.  This is another thing I've been pleading with
ANYONE to give me feedback on and, as always, have received none.

I have installed the latest releases of everything:
PHP 4.30
ACID 0.9.6b21
Apache 2.0.40
mySQL 4.0.3
Adodb 231
GD 1.8.4
Phplot 4.4.6
 on a new system and have documented and witnessed the following anomalies:
While the archiving feature now works, even with duplicate events/alerts,
now the AG Maintenance has some issues.  When a new AG is created, only the
ID shows up and no name.  Attempting to edit the AG or delete it and create
a new one, does not fix this problem.  The name and description do NOT show
The other issue is the graph tool.  This did work in the previous release
for ACID prior to ACID 0.9.6b20 but now the graphs do not render and present
broken graphics.  Guessing it has something to do with extracting the data
from an AG, which are not functioning correctly.
Anyone seen this or know of a "known" workaround ?
