Question: Can snort send alerts to the mysql database without writing an output file?
Solutions that did not work:
a) When I run the above command line without -A none and -K none I get alerts sent to ids database
i.e./usr/local/bin/snort -Dq -dev -o -c /usr/local/etc/snort/snort.conf -i mi0 -u user -g group
b) When I run with the -A none I get the pcap files but no alerts sent to ids database.
c) -Y option in FLoP /* I don't have FLoP installed */
Solution that works:
/usr/local/bin/snort -Dq -de -o -c /usr/local/etc/snort/snort.conf -i mi0 -u user -g group
The previous snort administrator had this in his snort.sh file.
No alert file is produced and logs are sent to the mysql database.
Question: Is there a switch that will not produce an alert file and still send alerts to
the mysql database?
Question: Does the commercial version of snort software have this Denial of Service bug?
The denial of service is a result of running out of disk space on the sensor.
This happened after a month when snort first was deployed a few years ago.
Thank you for your help,
