[Snort-users] ACSM-No Memory: queue_add!

Your out of memory for the snort process.  The AC pattern matcher can use a
bunch.  In snort.conf you can change this to a different lower memory pattern
matcher using:

config detection: search_method ac-bnfa

be sure to check for a 'config detection: search_method' line 1st, if you have
one it probably uses 'ac' instead of 'ac-bnfa', just change 'ac' to 'ac-bnfa'.
