    Works well. If you get attacked and depending on the attack your disk can fill up quite quickly. Just keep an eye on disk usage.

    I use snort but run it on dedicated machines. A sun ultra 5 can handle snort with no problems so I doubt you would have any cpu utilization issues with a newer x86 cpu unless your server is already under a constant heavy load.
