NOTE: By default, log_packets.sh is set up to have snort log EVERY packet on
the network. A bpf filter example is included in the script. Use bpf to tune
the amount of logging based on the available drive space. It is highly
recommended to create a seperate partion for logging data to. The sensor
reports currect disk stats to sguild, but the user is responsible for
deleting/archiving old data at this time.
Good thing diskspace is cheap :)
