[Snort-users] No Activity Occurring on ACID

Drop the -A full, that is default, and always remember the command line
over rides the conf file (unless I am misunderstanding the manual, and
that could easily be the case).  I try to set all the options I can in
the conf file, but that's me.  Do you have anything in /var/log/snort?
Try the following to crank it up.   

/usr/local/bin/snort -c /etc/snort/snort.conf 

http://www.snort.org/docs/snort_manual/node6.html
Note that command line logging options override any output options
specified in the configuration file. This allows debugging of
configuration issues quickly via the command line. 

I may be misunderstanding it

I have MySQL installed on the system, and have configured the snort.conf
file with the following line:

output database: log, mysql, user=snort password=XXXXXX dbname=snort
host=127.0.0.1 port=3306 sensor_name=rosnort

Snort is started at boot time via the /etc/init.d/snort script.
Additionally, I have started snort manually with the following command
syntax:

/usr/local/bin/snort -A full -i eth0 -c /etc/snort/snort.conf -v

I did a check of the snort database to see if anything is being logged
there.
When I run the select count (*) from event; command I get 0 which would
appear to indicate the data is not being posted into the database. If
that is the case, does that mean there is a permissions issue at work
here, or something else?

FYI: To access the mysql database I ran the following command:
/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql -p and provided the password.

Are you logging to a database?  Check your output configuration in
snort.conf

How are you starting snort?

Hi there --

Snort is running on our system but there is no activity occurring on the
ACID console. A check of the /var/log/snort/alert.log file indicated
that alerts were being tracked by the program. What settings do I need
to reconfigure to resolve this probem? Thanks.
