Well, it doesn't "save" cpu perchance.  It saves the snort process
from cpu usage in hard hit cases like database or Full logging.

If your cpu is pegged and you are using pcap formatted logs and "fast"
alerts, I don't think it will help you squeeze milk from the stone but
you can move your log processing to another machine if you do prefer
one of the more heavy output formats.
