This isn't normal behavior.  Why don't you upgrade to the newest
version and see if you still have the issue?  2.1.3 is the latest
stable releases and there is 2.2.0-RC1 if you want to live on the

Dear All,


I would like to enquire if any of your have tried running snort and
monitoring system resources at the same time.

I installed a snort v2.1.1 on my FreeBSD 4.9 system and found that it
eats up about 48-81 K of my memory every minute. This had resulted in
very high memory consumption by snort and eventually killing itself


I would like to know if this is a normal symptom of snort or is it
that there is some memory leakage from within snort?


Please advice.



Zack Toh.
