  Description     : output co-processor for Snort

Barnyard2 is a fork of the original barnyard project, designed specifically for
Snort's new unified2 file format.

Barnyard is a critical tool for the parsing of Snort's unified binary files,
processing and on-forwarding to a variety of output plugins. 


+ Offloads output processing of your Snort alert files to a dedicated process,
  minimising dropped packets in Snort itself.
+ Parses unified2 files.
+ Uses similar configuration syntax to that of Snort to simplify deployment.
+ Supports all Snort output plugins (except alert_sf_socket) as well as two
  additional plugins (Sguil and CEF).
