If you are on the snort-users mailing list (and you should be!) you will know that many users run multiple instances of snort on a single box. In this type of install it is recommended that each instance be pinned to a specific CPU. The current ebuild does not handle creating multiple snort instances or CPU pinning. I have been toying with the idea of re-architecting the ebuild, init scripts and conf.d file to support both multiple instance and optional CPU pinning. This would be quite a bit of work, so before I go down this road I wanted to get some feedback from the Gentoo Snort community to see if this is something the community needs/wants.
Would you like to see the Snort ebuild, init scripts, and conf.d file natively support multiple instances of Snort with the option to pin instance to a specific CPU?

Thx and happy snorting!
