[Snort-users] Snort/Barnyard Error

Pardon my ignorance, but to tell you the truth, I don't know. This thing
just got dumped in my lap after our security guy left and he didn't
leave any documentation as to what version of what is installed.


That said, how can I tell what version? The messages only say


Also, I'm still fairly new to 'nix so I'm not too sure how to answer
those kinds of questions. (We don't use any kind of 'nix GUI.)

Clarification, are you using barnyard, or barnyard2?


If the former, please use the latter.

First of all, I'm not sure the original post came through correctly so
I'm reposting. (Think I let outlook autofill and got the -request
address. My apologies.)

Second, I'm a newbie to Snort not having worked with it in several years
(and then just dabbling in it) so I'm just coming up to speed. Also,
since this has to do with barnyard, I'm not sure this is the correct
forum in which to post this.

Now, to the problem:

Our Snort/IDS/syslogs (we use Splunk to collect/view) are getting
filled-up with a barnyard 2629 warning "unable to extract timestampe
file extension from 'snort.log.nnnnnn.' How we can fix this?

Many thanks in advance for your help!
