Many thanks. We've decided to run multiple instances of snort.

Hi Peter,

as fas as I remember you won't need the patch for actual kernel versions
(2.4 or higher).

And maybe it would be a better idead to use the bonding device.
Here you can specify which interfaces should be grouped to a bond device
and sniff on that. 

If you have a seperate network to insert the alerts in a database it
would be a good idea to remove this interface from the list.
(The probabilty is high to find a matching pattern in the database
inserts and thus end up in an endless loop...)

Best regards
