[Snort-users] Snort Speed

I think you are really asking how to speed up ACID.  I posted a shell script
to optimize MySQL tables....check the archives.  I have seen significant
speed improvements after running it.

It's not secure "Because they told me it was secure".
The people at the other end of the link know less 
about security than you do. And that's scary.

Subject: [Snort-users] Snort Speed

	Yet another question about Snort and Speed.  I am now running Snort
on a Dual PIII 1.13 Ghz system with 256 MB of ram and a pair of 40 GB ATA
100 drive mirrored with a hardware controller.  I am using this system as a
test to see if it runs quicker.  The main page seems to open quicker, but
when I do queries like list by source IP and then sort by number of
occurrences, it still takes a long time to bring this up.  Now I know that
IDE drives are not the 100% best to use in server type applications, but I
was wondering if anyone has any ideas.  I am running snort 1.8.2, Acid
v0.9.6b18, and ADODB 1.54.  I currently have 31,336 alerts in the database.
Any thoughts?
