Snort and quickassist
I assume snort supports intel quickassist and if it does any clue what bump it will give going from a d525 to a c2558 ?
I think the answer is not quite yet…
I found this information in https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=86732.0
QuickAssist isn't supported in pfSense today, but we are actively working on a driver (with deep assist from Intel) to go back into the FreeBSD tree.
I believe this is the last hoop to jump through before it is supported however, since according to this article it has been integrated in Snort since 2010 (Snort 2.9 Beta).
