 My first guess is that the database table is full of garbage alerts. My advice is too check the file size of your logs and the database size to make sure it isnt jammed full, clear everything out, reboot/restart your services and try again.

Just a guess ;)

Subject: [Snort-users] problem logging

Hi everyone,
we have installed snort Version 2.0.2 (Build 92) with mysql and acid in
a linux machine (debian 2.4.20-2-686).

Snort used to work correctly, but since some weeks ago it does not log
anything in the alert file, nor in the snort.log file, nor in the acid
mysql bbdd.

I can not find anything in the logs that could give me a clue of what is

Here are the output lines of our snort.conf file:
output alert_unified: filename snort.log, limit 128
output alert_fast: alert
output database: alert, mysql, user=$user password=$password
dbname=snort_log host=aaa.aaa.aaa.aaa port=3306 sensor_name=$sensor_name

We have not change anything in the snort.conf, so I do not know why it
stop working as it used to.

¿Anyone has experience anything similar? ¿Any idea of what could be

Regards and thanks in advance.
