Hello Hui,
When you refer to the buffer, is this something that should be tweaked? The config file and sysconf file doesn't seem to have anything about a buffer. I used the following config options.

--enable-64bit-gcc --enable-inline-init-failopen --enable-ipv6 --enable-mpls --enable-targetbased --enable-zlib --enable-active-response --enable-normalizer --enable-reload --enable-ppm --enable-debug  --enable-dynamicplugin --enable-perfprofiling --enable-react --enable-flexresp3 --enable-gre --enable-sourcefire

Thank you,
Avery Rozar

Can you provide the reproduction steps? What command and arguments you
used? What's the config file?

This issue indicates the buffer isn't sufficient to hold the
additional data or other errors. If you compiled snort without
enabling debug, you shouldn't have this error.
