If you want to just log to /var/log/snort/alert 

that is the default logging mechanism... so just drop -l and -L .....

Subject: [Snort-users] unix time appended to snort log

Hi guys,

I am currently running snort 1.9.0 on the latest
FreeBSD stable. Snort 1.9.0 outputs log files in the
following format: name.unix time. 

For example: at the command line, I type "snort -i
<interface> -l /var/log/snort/<interface> -L example"
The log files will then be named "example.1042063205"

Question: Is there a way to have snort NOT append the
log file with unix time? As it formally did in snort
1.8.6? If not, is this planned functionality?
