I have a question and it might seem kinda vague. I apologize for that.

I am running snort 1.8.3 and I use snortsnarf.pl to compile my snort alert and portscan logs. Last Friday I noticed that when I went to run " ./snortsnarf.pl /var/log/snort/alert " the process never finishes. It consumes all my memory, and both CPU's. I have to physically cntrl+c to get the damn thing to stop using all my resources. This never used be this way. It just used to compile the alert file no time. Any ideas why this is happening?

I am running snort on a dual PIII 733 Xeon machine under Mandrake 8.1. Thanks for the replies.
