Hello ml,
I got a problem with snort, I'm running on a 486 dx2 66Mhz OpenBSD 2.9 
on ADSL, with snort 1.8.3 (it's the same with the 1.9 devel), some times 
(I haven't undestand when) snort go to high processor utilisation and 
will not decrase again... someone know why or a possible cause? I did 
some test, as with full bandwith in download, (640Kb/s) but no result... 
only sometime it did that...

/usr/local/bin/snort -c /etc/snort/snort.conf -N


Greatings
