I have a Sun Ultra5 Sparc64 box to use as a snort box. I'm running OpenBSD 3.3 on it.
I plan to log to mysql and run ACID to be able to see what's going on.
As a general rule, is there more overhead logging across the net to an external mysql server? mysql says it's optimized for linux, rather than openbsd, and I could keep that linux box on a private network with the ids console interface.
This will be reviewing traffic on a 100 mbit net.
