[Snort-users] snort - barnyard and acid

Hi All,
	I am running Snort 2.0 with unified logging and using barnyard 0.1.0 to
send the logs to a mysql database on another machine.

I have verified that the data is being loaded into the mysql database:

 mysql> select count(*) from event;
| count(*) |
|     7712 |

This query was done using the acid user login.

When I run acid (0.9.6b23) and set up the extra tables acid needs it
does not see any data. I have tried using the root account as well as
the acid account to access the snort data base but it makes no

I don't get any errors, just the statement that there are no events.

What makes this all the more frustrating is that the first time I set
this up it all worked flawlessly, then I deleted the snort database and
rebuilt it because it was full of test data and since then acid has been
unable to find any data.

Any suggestions ?
