Optional for debugging:

output alert_csv: /var/log/snort/csv.out

remove config localtime - it will prove challenging during timewarps 
like DST

change that to

/var/snort/bin/barnyard -c /var/snort/etc/barnyard.conf \
    -s /var/snort/etc/sid-msg.map \
    -g /var/snort/etc/gen-msg.map \
    -p /var/snort/etc/classification.config \
    -d /var/snort/log \
    -f snort-unified.log \
    -w /var/snort/log/snort-unified-log.waldo

note that -f and -w are changed.
