you are using too many inodes in your file system.  basically,
you have too many individual files and there are not enough
inode entities available to store the metadata in.  i think the max
on linux is 32,000, which is the max for a virtual file system.

make a new fs just for snort so it will not overflow.

this is the danger of using the fs as a database.  i like to do it
also, but i am keeping my eye on a similar problem for another
