[Snort-users] Send data to MySQL and Alert file

I use the following output plugins in my snort.conf:  

output alert_fast: alert.ids
output database: log, mysql, host=somehost port=3306 dbname=snortdb
                 password=xxxxxxx sensor_name=sensor1 encoding=hex
output alert_syslog: LOG_AUTHPRIV LOG_ALERT

I get alerts to both a file (alert.ids) and syslog, and log entries to
MySQL.  If you want alerts to MySQL, then change the 'output database: log,
...' to 'output database: alert, ...'.

They should work for you too.

Subject: [Snort-users] Send data to MySQL and Alert file

I am trying to send data to two places.  One is to the MySQL database
and another is to the alert file.  When I set the output to MySQL, no
data goes to alert file.  Only when I comment out output for MySQL, the
data now goes to alert file.  Anybody know how to get data to both
