Folks,

I have 11 IDS machines connecting to a single console machine with ACID on
it.

Unfortunately the console machine won't load the ACID console - it just
sits sending the request to the localhost. As a result i've disconnected
the network cable to stop any more info being collected as a stop gap

I suspect the database is full so i want to clear it but being new to IDS
i'm not sure how.

The consultant who installed it also included a gui based client called
'gmyclient' which allows me to right click on individual tables in the
snort database with the option of emptying the table

Does this sound a reasonable option or can anyone point me to the directory
where i need to empty the database and if possible let me know the commands

i'm using redhat 8 linux

apologies for appearing like a newbie but thats what i am

thanks again

mick
