[Snort-users] Gigabit and Snort

Having a set of fiber connections doesn't matter if the motherboard and
OS can't handle the bandwidth.    There should be no problem handling
gig speeds (even upwards of 3-4 Gbps) on one machine... all for less
than $7,000  (copper or fiber gigabit, pick your poison)

For more info on OS/Hardware stuff in relation to this, search google
for snort and polling

sorry, but we had this several times now. There's nothing said before
not applying to your setup. You'll have to take barnyard or try to log
in unified mode at least for your tests first. Also use another libpcap
provided by Phil Wood.

If you have more than one machine you may want to split the traffic you
observe using BPF.
