[Snort-users] Large mysql files in folder /usr/local/mysql/var (Redhat Linux 8.0 ver)

I was wondering how I could resolve the issue of the file size growing very large more than 1GB in the following folder /usr/local/mysql/var with the file names as

 IDSsnort-bin.001 ,002 and so on... One of our Snort box running on Linux had used 100%  disk space and crashed.

 Are there any automated scripts which can delete the older file to make space on the hard disk.

Any suggestion really appreciated.

Sorry, that's not going to work.

Ipcalc is your friend!

It won't catch the 10.5.4.x net.  You'll need to use something else.

Since the more subnets you throw at HOME_NET the more Snort has to work,
you'll come out with:

	var HOME_NET [,]
