[Snort-users] Snort is using a lot of memory

OS: Centos 7

Recently Snort started to use a lot of memory, and it is constantly on 29-30% of usage, it did not happen before (even when Snort was using more memory at the beginning - it went down after an hour or two), the only change to the server was a Centos upgrade

I put the memcap in the snort.conf —> stream5: global and restarted snort, but the memory usage did not go down. It is as Snort is ignoring the config

Any help with this?

Thank you
