[Snort-users] Choosing the best rules

That's a loaded question. What rules you enable should be dependent on your environment/network etc...  

I use pulled pork and use the enablesid.conf and disablesid.conf to turn on categories and disable certain rules. It's a constant tuning.  Enabling all rules could put a heavy load on snort and flood where your storing the results (i.e. Base).  

Hope that helps,
