To: snort-users at lists.sourceforge.net

In the course of my testing of Snort I have averaged about 40% packet
loss. I am running Snort on Fedora. The segment I am monitoring is 100
mb and is very busy. Does anyone have any recommendations for tuning
Snort to not drop so many packets? Is there any recommendations for
hardware? The CPU is running at about 40% and the memory looks fine.

Do you Yahoo!?
