comment System Hardening: Outsource to Security Expert or have Sys Admin do it?
@SuziG: It really does. We're all in this together. Thinking otherwise leads to siloism which ends up being rather unpleasant for everyone involved.

comment Log Attacks in Different Files using Snort
Oh sure, it's an available feature but it seems pretty unnecessary for his use case. The most correct method would be to do post processing in your log aggregation system, however that may not necessarily be applicable and preprocessing may be the most logical solution. I wouldn't hold your breath for multithreaded, though. It won't happen until v3 which has effectively been "any day now" for how many years?

comment Log Attacks in Different Files using Snort
Multi-threaded is the primary feature that's been consistently stated, "Coming in 3.0". However they keep backporting 3.0 planned features into the 2.9 series, just not that one. Multiple instances is, unfortunately, still the only way to spread out load beyond one core.
