[Snort-users] ACID tables populated, charts seem OK, but some query results empty

Why not use BASE?
ACID is a dead product.
BASE is an improved and maintained fork from ACID.

Subject: [Snort-users] ACID tables populated, charts seem OK, but some
query results empty

Snort and ACID up for 12 hours, now - my acid_main.php shows:

Sensors: 1
Unique Alerts: 7    (   5 categories   )
Total Number of Alerts: 233
    * Source IP addresses: 41
    * Dest. IP addresses: 14
    * Unique IP links 75
    * Source Ports: 38
          o TCP ( 2)  UDP ( 36)
    * Dest. Ports: 3
          o TCP ( 1)  UDP ( 2)

... with appropriate histograms for Traffic Profile by Protocol.

I can successfully chart Time vs. number of Alerts, and I see data in
acid tables.

PROBLEM: Some standard queries from acid_main.php give me empty results
Sensors				OK
Unique alerts			empty
Categories				OK
Total Number of Alerts		empty
Source IP addresses		OK
Dest. IP addresses		OK
Unique IP links			OK
All source/dest ports queries	OK

Snapshot queries:
Most recent Alerts (all)		empty (gives count of 15, for
Today's: alerts unique, listing	empty (with counts)
Today's: alerts unique, src, dts	OK


It appears that results are only shown where IPs are looked up - what
be the problem?

Sorry if this is a FAQ (I have searched).

Any help appreciated.
