you may need a commercial system to keep up, or at least one box per
If you have a lot of 'small' < 64 byte packets, you might forget the
pizza box.
(run ntop on a sniffer link for a week and see)
The backplane on most 'pizza bozes' is 3.2Gbs max., and two
bidirectional 1GB pipes would be, well, more than the available
backplane bandwidth.

	I'm looking for any insight into successful gigabyte Snort
deployments.  My network is huge multi-gigabyte environment.  Most of
the connections to my firewalls are gig.  My Intenet connections are
mostly dual OC-12s.
	I'm thinking about using a high end Linux with say Red Hat 4 or
FreeBSD with at least 4 GB RAM with a Dual Core Intel CPU.
	Any advice is very welcome.
