Yeah. I was talking to our system admins, and we can't to this because
We may be able to replicate the hash for bro and snort with our DAG (7.5),
but as it turns out, we are also running low on cores on that box. So we
are much better off trying to get new hardware to accomplish this.
I appreciate all the feedback. You guys are always very helpful with these
