It depends on what you want.

tcpdump has a snaplen of 68 as a default.  Snort uses 1514 as a default.
You can change that with the -P parameter.

Depending on what you want, snort can and will send the same data to the
DB.  The output doesn't really matter since it's going into a db.  You
could modify the db output plugin, but that's a whole different thing!
