[Snort-users] TCP stream processing performance

I am looking at Snort performance and I found that in the Preprocessor profile statistics, "s5" or "s5tcp" is taking a lot of time. My understanding is that s5tcp is for TCP stream reassembly and the time taking is mostly due to the buffering and mis-ordered packets. The actually processing by the CPU is relatively short. Is my understanding correct or there is other intense processing going on?
