I've noticed that snort seems to be eating memory. I started snort on 4/10,
and all was normal.... On 4/13 I noticed that it's memory usage had grown to
a whopping 12MB! I wasn't sure if it was still growing or had reached a
stable size. As of today, it's up to 14MB.
So, I started a new copy just to see what it's memory size was: 6.4MB
I'll try to do some testing with the preprocessors and see if that makes a
difference later tonight.
