I just setup snort using "twigles" excellent how-to. I'm not logging to
mysql yet. Just want to get a feel for snort first.
Using snort -c /usr/snort/snort.conf -l /var/log/snort -s

I noticed a hundreds of directories created under /var/log/snort for the
first 24 hours. However in day 2,3,4,and 5 only one or two directories are
being created per day. Plus when I view the older directories they don't
show any new activity, as they should since some of the boxes are MY boxes
creating FP's.
