Very easy to use ;)

If you are using snort with database plugin you must stop.
All snort's alerts must redirect in a file. So, you can use the syslog
option in snort.conf or perform snort like that :
snort -A none -CDIepbi eth0 -c snort.conf -s ""
snort -A fast -CDIepbi eth0 -c snort.conf
snort -A full -CDIepbi eth0 -c snort.conf
This is examples, obviously you can use other snort's options.

Eventually, you must redirect your alert file in SnortALog like that :
cat alert.ids | ./snortalog.pl -n 20 -report
./snortalog.pl -n 20 -report -file alert.ids
