Hello everyone,

This is the requirement:
>From a syslog message that describes an alert to be able to grab the entire
packet that caused this alert.

I thought of few ways to do this, and after considering other requirements
as well, came to the conclusion that I would like to work in this way:

1. snort output to unified2 files.
2. barnyard2 reads the files and takes two outputs:
a. syslog.
b. database.

Based on the information in the syslog message, I'll be able to correlate
between the message and the saved event.

As far as I understand, the correlation should be done using sid and cid.
However, I can't find them in the syslog message.

Am I missing something?
