I am trying to use SNORT/ACID to provide my management with a briefing of 
potential threats and build a case for installing an IDS in production.  I 
have them up and running but am struggling with some of the ACID reporting 
and how to best present the log information.  I am really struggling with 
the graphing portion to provide anything meaningful.  I would appreciate any 
suggestions anyone has for providing brief yet useful information from my 
logs in terms of what SNORT is seeing - id types of attacks/frequency etc.  
I should mention that I am in a win32 environment and have SNORT 1.8.7 and 
ACID 0.9.6.b21.  If a tool other than ACID would be my best bet then suggest 

Thanks for you time
