[Snort-users] Performance: Streaming Media

I have a Linux machine which does mostly www service and port forwarding 
for mms service ( Window Media Server )

If I install snort on the the Linux machine do you think the filtering 
of packets will affect the forwarding for streaming media ?

This machine uses about 90MB/sec 24 hours a day and is on a 100MB/sec 
plan, many gigs per hour are streamed and downloaded.

I really want an IDS on this box but not if it will have a too great 
effect on streaming media performance.

Kind regards
