i'm just started with snort.....the sensor was running
fine lately.....
but sometimes.....when i'm trying to play around with
it into another
new box.....the snort itself
is not generate any output into alerts file which is
located in /var/log/snort
FYI, i usually use this configuration...
output database: log, mysql,

and i run with this command...
snort -qbID -i eth0 -c /etc/snort/snort.conf -u snort
-g snort m 007

then i cd to /var/log/snort/
what i'm confused is theres no alerts file here but
except of snort.log.smething
so i tail messages log in /var/log/ , yes the snort
can see packets
going through....
but why it not generates the alerts file like in the
1st box...?
can anyone help me out....
