Use a tap to break it into 2 or more 1G sessions and use n+1 sensors.

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?
