Sguil: sensor install gotcha: sancp

Today I installed a new sensor for Sguil. It went much better than before, but still i needed #snort-gui’s help again. The issue was that Sancp stats were not picked up by the sensor.

It turns out that the default initscript for sancp uses an old and depreciated setting that tells sancp to log into the /snort_data/sensorname/sancp/today directory. The sensor expects it in /snort_data/sensorname/sancp. After changing that in the /etc/default/sancp file it worked like a charm.
