Heh.... And here I am running on a Sun Ultra-2, with dual processors, qfe 
card,  and 1GB of Ram.  I thought snort was keeping up, but apparently 
just barely.  The maximum throughput i am seeing is about 5.5Mbps and 3k

FWIW, I've tested 2.1.3 (latest from cvs) on a link pushing about 40k
packets per second (400Mbps).   No dropped packets.   Machine is a
@$2500 machine with built in gig interfaces.
