Snort / Suricata Load?

Hi there,

I’m looking at installing either Snort or Suricata on a Pi-4 (8GB) with DietPi OS (buster).

I was wondering if anyone has already installed/tested either Snort or Suricata and able to give some insights into load?

Looking at performance from the occasional intrusion, to flooding (particularly when under heavy load/DDoS or otherwise, and what the i can handle under before dropping/mishandling intrusions, etc.).


Hope you are not really planning to use Buster as it’s quite an old Debian release and we will drop support soon.

just haven’t upgrade the pi’s yet, i guess i can then test one with suricata

Shouldn’t be a problem…are you going to install ARM64?

I believe so - nice link :slight_smile:
