Hello Snort users, 

I am using Snort ( and Barnyard2 (1.9) with a configuration that sends alerts to a database. MySql DB is the storage unit to save these alerts and it is in separate machine from the Snort/Barnyard2 machine.

my question,

Is there a way to evaluate the performance of sending alerts from Snort/Barnyard2 to a remote DB? 

Is the focus here to monitor the throughput of the Snort node or the DB node? 
any recommended benchmark tools for such experiment?

Thank you and any suggestions will be appreciated
