You can determine your version of barnyard by typing:

barnyard -V

If you get back 0.1.0 or 0.2.0, you are running barnyard, not barnyard2.

Barnyard2 is at:

I can tell you that the date on the barnyard and snort executables seems to be March, 2008. Whether that tells you the version or not, I don't know.

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 "barnyard."

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!
