In addition to using swatch, you can try ossec to
generate e-mails/active responses based on your snort
logs. It is much more powerful then swatch (or
guardian) because it allows you to alert based on:
-Single IDS events.
-Mutliple IDS events for same source ip in a specific
-Multiple IDS events for same snort ID in a specific
-Only for the first time a Snort ID is seen.
-Only for the first time a Snort ID/IP combo
-Only on specific categories.
-Only on specific priorities (or any other option
-You can ignore specific IPs/Snort IDS.
-You can specify maximum number of alerts per hour,
and if this number is reached, it will send all the
alerts in just one e-mail.
-You can ignore automatically rules that alert too
Oh, ossec also analyzes a lot of other log formats,
being easy to integrate with other applications.
*Don't take my word for it, because I'm an ossec
developer, but you should give it a try. Installation
is pretty easy too.
