I trying to log at my database log alerts, but if the rule is like:

log tcp any...

It doesn't work and display this warning:

WARNING database [Database()]: Called with Event[0x0] Event Type [0]
(P)acket [0x9954860], information has not been outputed.

but if the rule is an alert:

alert tcp any... (with the same rule, only changing this)

It works.

I use the output unified2 in snort and a postgresql database for the
barnyard2 output.

The most curious is that all work correctly if the rule is an alert, but if
it is an log, i only can see the warning and the event is notsaved in the


alert - generate an alert using the selected alert method, and then
log the packet

log - log the packet

Barnyard2 Need a event and a packet to output to database.

As i understand it if you only use LOG as a rule action, only the
packet thus the behavior your observe.
