According to this link, ""How to view snort log files"

From the terminal like snort -r xx.log.xxx$ or if you have barnyard2 install then you can use that...

Plus with barnyard2 you can log the output to a comma-separated file; "Snort Cookbook/Logging, Alerts, and Output Plug-ins" scroll down to "Logging to CSV file"

This is the problem, I am not running snort, however am getting that format (running Sucatia)

As for Barnyard, it bombed during the installation onto my Linux flavor.

Doesn't some type of application or log view exist for this?  Thanks.

You can use Wireshark, tcpdump, SnortALog


Or you can use the -r switch
snort -dve -r ./snortlogs/snort.log.8732687341
