I recently thought I was having the same issue - lot's of zero-length
alert files and BASE had nothing in it. Turns out the application system
is so minor and isolated that it rarely sees any activity for Snort to

I can tell you one thing that will generate Snort transactions for sure:
run a Nessus scan against one of the systems Snort is protecting. That
should generate entries from even the default Snort rules.

Hope this helps a little bit.
