[Snort-users] Snort and SQL logging

My `output database' has:

	output database: log, mysql, user=snort password=password
dbname=snortdb 
		host=localhost 

Is it necessary to put `encoding=hex detail=full' and `alert' instead of
just `log'? I'm using ACID to wade through the reports.

Yes.

In my snort.conf for snort 1.8.7, I do both:

<snip>
# -------------------------------------------------
# output alert_full
output alert_full: /var/log/snort/alert187.full
# keep as from 1.8.4

<snip>

# output database: log, mysql, user=root password=test dbname=db
#   host=localhost
output database: alert, mysql, user=toot password=p4ssw0rd \
  dbname=snort host=[host_name] encoding=hex detail=full
# keep as from 1.8.4
<snip>
