[Snort-users] 3 Snort, 1 MySQL

Actually, I change my plan :)

This will take testing to make sure my machine can handle the load.
But I'm planning on putting a machine with 3 NICs in it.
2 of them unaddressed. One on the DMZ and one outside. 
the last, addressed, inside.

And hoping that I can make all 3 snorts instances log to mysql in an
organized fashion.
(Database per instance? tables are based on interface?)

Any recommandation on how that works are welcome.
