   Hi Agus,
hehe.. Nice. Thanks Jaime! The site looks great! Will give it a try.


ALso one thing that drew me a smile was the barnyard plugin for big data!


i will read how to implement this with logstash and ElasticSearch. Im 
using red is as queue
system as logstash has output input plugins. Will read about kafka..

   Actually we read the queue in different ways. As we can consider an 
event a subset of a standard log we are working on solving that side in 
both areas, not just for Snort. Thus we do:

   * Read the events (already enriched with metadata) for dashboards / 
GUI. This will show aggregated data and not in all fields but will be 
screaming fast. The same would apply to other projects like Flow.
   * Read RAW data and store it in some kind of schema less system. We 
still have to decide quite a bit on how to do this part. Flow for 
example wont need this part, and this is why is almost ready
   * Read the messages from a Correlation engine in order to produce 
further events by itself. We have decided the software we will employ 
for this, but is not ready

   As for standard logs, an enhanced syslog server will process them and 
extract as much metadata as possible and inject this info in the kafka 
system, were it will be pipelined into our whole infraestructure

   We fear logstash wont be fast enough for what we are seeking (again, 
not just IDS events). Elastic search is for sure in our radar screen :)

   Either way, as we suggested in the original post, we believe our 
patch to Barnard will provide a lot of alternatives into BigData realm. 
We are open to discuss ideas with the community :)
