Thank you for the answer.
ok , so i should run barnyard2 then run snort. In this case, branyard2 will
detect the new generated file by snort and put the data into snort data
base. is this right ?

you mention " unified2 log file" , is this the gnerated file by snort ? for
examlpe snort.log.1374827257 ?

So when i run  the following command :
/usr/local/bin/barnyard2 -c /usr/local/snort/etc/barnyard2.conf -d
/var/log/snort -f snort.u2 -w /var/log/snort/barnyard2.waldo

snort.u2 is the genrated file, read by barnyard2 from te directrory
/var/log/snort ?
should i mention other options in barnyard2 command ?

Thanks a lot
