[Snort-users] Too little traffic being seen!

Try sending snort a kill -USR1 and look in your syslog logfiles to see if 
it's dropping packets. (yes, it WILL go to syslog, even if you're not using 
syslog logging for snort alerts)

  If it is, disable spp_portscan2 and spp_conversation and try that. They 
chew up a lot of memory and add a lot of overhead for something that 
doesn't work well.

You might also want to run "top" and make sure you're not using a ton of 
swap memory.
