It seems you don't need to have snort write both unified files.  All the 
required info seems to be in the unified "log" file, so this is what you 
want barnyard to read.  It's not at all clear to us what info is in the 
unified "alert" file that's not *also* in the unified "log" file.  So we 
don't write a unified "alert" file at all.

There was previous discussion of this at:
