6 100mb streams it's a whole lot of traffic, man...
If you need to run a snort with this traffic you will need
a lot of computer power. But it all depends on how much
occupied the connections will be. If they are full you
can go and search for "gigabyte snort" in google :-)

The only people for me are the mad ones -- the ones who are mad to live,
mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time,
the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn
like fabulous yellow Roman candles.
                -- Jack Kerouac, "On the Road"
