In this document

This document describes how to install and run Snort with SmartNICs and Napatech Software Suite (also referred to as 3GD), and how the multi-CPU distribution functionality improves performance in an IDS scenario.

The installation process is described using a source-based installation of Snort on CentOS as an example. You must adapt the installation process for package-based installation, for other Linux distributions, and for FreeBSD.
