Using Barnyard? The claim is that with Barnyard2 a 10G link can be
supported.

Subject: [Snort-users] Best practices for very high volume install..

Hey there, have a very high traffic install (snort 2.9/barnyard2) that
I'm trying to get into a good and usable position. 

At this point I've got a gig port that's saturated to the box so we're
going to do a 2g port-channel here in a bit.

So far I've come to the conclusion that mysql binary logging isn't
realistic, so it's been turned off.

Additionally I've got a script that runs at midnight to purge alerts
that are greater than 2 days old.

I'm considering putting the database into RAM for a little more speed.

Does anyone else have some other best practice type suggestions for a
very high traffic box?
