Network-based intrusion detection systems (NIDS) are perceptively distributed devices within computer networks. They aim to examine traffic passing through the network on which they are installed passively. The database is the most vital part of network intrusion detection systems, as all the data converted information from the NIDS needs to be saved in a patterned structured manner. Understanding the usability of several available types of databases like central databases, Distributed databases, operational databases, etc., it is on the developer’s end to choose the most comprehensive one. Data transformation and performance speed are essential features that a stable database can handle. In this paper, we have analyzed the performance of multiple databases to find out the proficient way that favors NIDS optimization.
