[Snort-users] Barnyard2 configuration and event generation

I'm using Barnyard2 to read Snort unified log files and generate some text log of events found in those logs. The problem is, all I'm getting is that there's a bunch of TCP packets. I was hoping for more specific information like ARP, HTTP, event/transaction information, that sort of thing. Snort seemed to have things categorized nicely, but I couldn't see the specific event list. All I want is a text log with detailed, specific events that give an idea of what is going on.

The command I'm running to read the logs is:
barnyard2 -c /usr/local/snort/etc/barnyard2.conf -o test-attack1.snort.u2.1355871919

Is there another option I should try?
