Currently I’m running 7 snort sensors on my pfsense firewall and each of them is
at 672 mb’s for using memory. Which seems really high. I believe I read

how many rules do you have enabled?

what tool are you using to view that memory consumption?

what column are those figures listed under in that tool?
