Hi Joel, Matt, Jason and all,

  I have do it some speed tests using url provided by Jason 
(http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/). And the results are:

  - Using Snort-Inline with clamav preprocessor:

   Download speed: 776 Kbps
   Upload speed: 156 Kbps

  - Using Snort-Inline without clamav preprocessor:

   Download speed: 806 Kbps
   Upload speed: 255 Kbps

  - Without Snort:

   Download speed: 821 Kbps
   Upload speed: 299 Kbps

  Ok, in my opinion it is clear that the problem is clamav preprocessor. I 
understand that it is normal to lose some bandwidth when I use clamav 
preprocessor, but as much as half??
