syslog to a central syslog server for text logs... other's use sql databases and 
feed them via IP sockets... it all depends on your needs and usage, really... in 
my environment, we don't use any logs or databases other than snort's standard 
alert file... then again, we're not aggregating numerous sniffers in the product 
i'm working with ;)
