I have run Snort for a little while now, and would like to begin some
side-by-side comparisons with other NIDS. I am looking to test usability,
reliability and performance, primarily. I imagine the latter of the two
criteria will vary significantly depending upon the number and types of rules
used, and O/S Snort is implemented upon. Which leads to my question..
I wanted to know if any of you had a preference as to running Snort on Free
or Open BSD. Which do you think will be more reliable? Which will perform
better? Also, regardless of the OS implemented, I plan on recompiling the
kernel, and performing other optimizations. If any of you have any specific
suggestions regarding this, please feel free to interject.
Thanks in advance for the information. I look forward to the repsonses.
