I am using a dual 1.13 Ghz PIII with 2 Gig of memory sniffing off of a 
fibber card as dedicated sensors. The task on the processors is on 3%.

I'm curious, for a new Snort box which one will be better?
Use dual processor, P IV Xeon with for example 2.8 Ghz and 512 KB L2
Cache, or single processor P IV Xeon with 3.06 Ghz but with 1 MB L2
Does the size of L2 cache of the processor matters in speeding up Snort,
especially in monitoring gigabit Ethernet traffic?
