[Snort-users] AANVAL or MYSQL question

Snort packet processing is still single thread, but it also has other threads such as reload thread, control socket thread etc. The reload thread should be idle majority of the time.  If you suspected it is restarting, you will not see any message like “snort reloaded…”. You will see “snort initializing “ or “restart” in the messages.

Best,
Hui.

Isn't Snort single-threaded? I wouldn't imagine it will be creating another "thread" other than its own. On systems i look for there is only one process on every system I checked. May be OS specific? not likely?

I forgot to mentions that my systems are also compiled with reload. Which brings the question of if the Snort has been reloaded (not restarted) on these systems or these processes are showing up after a clean reboot?
