[Snort-users] max_queue_events

Could anybody explain me the exact function from max_queue_events?
I watched the sourcecode, but i'm not sure which need this parameter has. I'm 
not good in programming;)

Can i tell snort, how big the queue for pakets(which will be checked) is? The 
default is 5, so if i increase this value, Snort would be slower but don't 
have packet loss? Right or not?

Cheers Thomas

used max_queue_event with:

[snip snort.conf]
config detection: max_queue_events 10
