We run Snort with Applied Watch in VMWare Server and Workstation on a
routine basis and have had other customers do so in a production
environment. I actually just did a deployment of our software with Snort on
a VMWare GSX Server on a GiGE link and we have not seen any degradation in
performance of Snort. Vmware is a beautiful thing :)

I'm curious to know if anyone is running snort on a VMWare ESX environment?
We are investigating ways to reduce costs as well as share functionality by
setting up a vmware esx server and using Linux running on one of the VM's
using snort.

This would be monitoring a network using a gigabit interface..

Anyone tried this, or have any input?
