it appears to be logging data again to base, 
so you are saying, wait 24 hours for new data to be present?
ic, your point about 1 hour, as most of the configs state 1 hour, 
however, when i first pinged server and ICMP hits were displayed on
base, it was instantaneous. so you see where i get my idea, that after
clearing a completely blank table, displayed data on base, and by
clearing tables, it wont display data quickly EVEN after i restart
services, or clear or snort.logs,alerts, or restart snort/barnyard2
processes. see my point?

i see yours. thanks.

just a test, i will clear tables, and close browser, come back in 1 hour
increments, and see if that is the issue, it takes an hour to input new
data after base clear table buttons have cleared. im assume there is a
switch in the configs to make it quicker. 

any idea of what that line or file name is, in /var/www/base-1.4.5/* ?
what keyword to grep for?
