No...not necessarily.

I want a dshield client that is capable, instead of requiring reading alerts
from the alerts file reads them from the mysql db.  I currently use Demarc
as my front end.

Now, the binary logging is an option as long as the dshield client can read
the binary output (I haven't read yet where it would be capable of doing

Of course, the reason for my using the mysql db is to save on disk space
since ascii is hdd intensive.

I appreciate everybody's repsonses.

|lets see If i interpreted this correctly, you want a client so you can 
|view your alerts that your logging to MySQL??
|check out ACID (Analysis Console for Intrusion Detection) from 
|http://www.cert.org/kb/acid/ . Now if your just
|writing alerts to disk, I suggest checking out unified logging and or 
|binary logging.
|Hope that Helps
