Snort memory leak ?
on my 1.2 pfsense box, I always have a problem with snort.
I've already read many posts on this forum, I also tried to increase my ram. but whatever I do, sooner or later I have the problem below
May 13 19:31:55 kernel: pid 12048 (snort), uid 0, was killed: out of swap space
May 13 19:31:55 kernel: swap_pager_getswapspace(16): failed

Thanks in advance for your help
Do you have enough memory to run snort? Snort is an awfully memory intensive tool and if you can't feed the pig, you'll run into problems.
You were right, the first time I increased memory I did not add enough
Finally, I add 400M Memory and is working fine now,
thanks for your help
