[Snort-users] Rotate barnyard files?

I'm running two barnyards to process alerts and logs. From my snort.conf:

output alert_unified: filename snort.alert, limit 128
output log_unified: filename snort.log, limit 128

My snort log directory is filling up with files like these (ie. there are
multiple snort.alert.* and snort.log.* files):


Does that mean barnyard is getting behind processing the log and alert
files? Should I be rotating or deleting them? How do I know when barnyard
is done with a file...?
