Hi Raymond,

> output database: log, mysql, user=yyyyy dbname=snort_archive password=xxxxxx host=snorthost sensor_name=ids01

you have only output plugins for the "log" facility. Therefore snort
will use the default for the "alert" facility which is writing of files
to /var/log/snort....

Try the option "-A none" which will disable all alerts but still
allows the "log" output plugin to work...

Best regards
