Thanks for the reply.

My Snort process is not restarted, nor are my snort logs rotated, so I
can't understand why barnyard appears to stop sending info to BASE.

One other thing. My barnyard.waldo file contained the wrong snort.log file.

Can't quite get my head round this, however a cron to restart barnyard
might be a workaround. I can't understand why it should be necessary though.
