Analyse Snort Output via PRTG



We are currently running snort as IDS/IPS on some of our firewalls. Is there a "comfortable" way of analysing snort's output-messages (Unified2-format) to have a nice looking integration withinin PRTG? I tried using the syslog-messages, but by using them we only get a table of those messages and not an analysis of what is really going on.

Any suggestions?

Dear marcolips

We have no instructions for integration with third-party applications. You might want to check out the PRTG API to see what options you have to operate PRTG through a script.

Hi Marcolips,

Did you manage to get anywhere with Snort and PRTG - I too really like the idea of a single point of reference for network health...
