[Snort-users] gigabit nic?

Hello,

I'm running Snort 1.8.7 on RH Linux 7 on a Compaq DL360. I'm wondering if I
can install a gigabit NIC in the box? How high of throughput can Linux/Snort
handle and would this change benefit me at all? We currently don't have
heavy traffic, but I'm wondering if a large attack were to come along, would
Snort still be able to catch attacks at higher NIC speeds?

Thanks
