CHeck out the USAGE file, it has some hints for high performance
configurations.  One thing you should do to speed up what you've got
there is to use the '-A fast' switch instead of 'full'.

Snortfull.conf includes just about everything that's in the lib files in
the distro.  You can feel free to hand edit the file to add any
functionality that you'd like after you've downloaded it, we don't mind.
