 I used hping3 to simulate Dos attackby  :
$ sudo hping3example.com -c 10000 -d 120 -S -w 64 --flood -p 80
And i logged it by snort to log file.

Then I used barnyard2 to send this log file to snort mysql , but it give me this error :

ERROR: Unable to allocate memory!  (3737895080 requested)
Fatal Error, Quitting..
Barnyard2 exiting
database: Closing connection to database "snort"

before simulating the dos attack and logged it , it was work fine.
Why this happen and how can I fix it?
