Hi all,
       Have you tested the snort performance? If I feed snort with 3,000 rules, how can I optimize its configuration to handle 1 gigabits of traffic per second?Does any one have experience on this?
My hardware would be
                          Memory: 4G for snort
                          CPU: Intel I5
Many thanks.
