Run two instances of Barnyard as well.
OK, reworked all my scripts to handle multiple instances of barnyard but I have just realised that I can't find anyway
of telling barnyard2 which sid to use. Nor does it allow a filter option as barnyard (acid output plugin) did.
So if you are splitting traffic on a single interface between two snort instances how do we configure barnyard2 so that
it does not trip over itself with respect to sids.
I have poked though the source and played with putting the filters on the command line but am really none the wiser --
anything I put on the commandline seems to be ignored completly.
From the source I think barnyard is supposed to take a filter on the commandline and us it to select sid but it still
writes the pid file as barnyard2_<int>.pid so this will fail ???

I am at the point where I need to have more than one snort instance running on a given sensor so we can take
advantage of multiple CPUs and thus I will be producing multiple unified2 files on a sensor. Logically there is
still just one sensor -- can barnyard2 merge input from more than one input file? I've googled and rtfm'ed and
could not find anything that suggested that this is possible. I hope I missed something :)
