After I did some clearing in "Cache and Status" - I can not get any alerts to register on the main BASE page. I tried hitting the snort/base box with an intensive nmap scan. I can see "Total Events" increment in Cache & Status. But there is nothing happening on the main BASE page.
From the main page:
Sensors/Total: 0 / 0
Unique Alerts: 0
Total Number of Alerts: 0
Added 0 alert(s) to the Alert cache

Database: snort@localhost (Schema Version: 107
From Cache & Status :
Alert Information Cache:
Total Events: 4980 Cached Events: 0
Any ideas what's going on? Thanks.
I rebooted the box because I needed to get this working again. But would appreciate any sights on what might have happened and a gentler way to restart snort/base. Thanks.
