Wondering if anyone else is using Unified2 output from Suricata to be read by Barnyard2?  I'm asking because I notice that one of the map files required by Barnyard2, gen-msg.map, is pretty much nonexistent these days in terms of updates, our version is very old.

Barnyard2 seems to require this map file in order to operate correctly and since Barnyard2 itself has not been updated in years, I am wondering if anyone knows of a way to generate appropriate gen-msg.map files OR if there is indeed a better way to handle Unified2 output format these days in terms of parsing and syslogging the event data and pcap information?

Thanks in advance for any helpful suggestions.
