Yes, it is.

This is the right configuration. But note: Each output plugin
has to be finished before snort can start to analyze the next
network packet. Especially inserting data in a remote database
is a time consuming procedure. This one of the many reasons I
started to code FLoP: http://www.geschke-online.de/FLoP/ ;-)
