I've started doing some benchmarks and profiles of firestorm IDS, and
while I was at I thought, hell, may as well run snort through here as

Results of my first run are here:

Software is snort-1.9.0 (no modifications) running against a lincoln
labs data file (396MB) on linux-2.5.59 on a celeron 1.2GHz. Profiler is
oprofile - an accurate full system hardware-assisted profiler
(http://oprofile.sf.net). I used all the default snort rules. tcp stream
reassembly is disabled.

This is just a preliminary run and I haven't finalised the testbed yet.
Once I have, I will post full configs, rules, compiled binaries, links
to the exact data files, full software and hardware setup etc.

Any comments or suggestions, what would be the most useful version of
snort to use, should I grab CVS versions? Any comments on what rulesets
or data i should be using.

PS. Please CC, im not on the list.

Happy Hacking.
