Possibilities of the intrusion detection system Snort and factors influencing its performance are considered in the work. For this purpose the dependence of the system Snort 2.8.0 performance on the chosen hardware and the technique of logging data about intrusions has been investigated. It is shown that the number of dropped packets is a very important factor having impact on the system performance. The main factors having influence on the system performance are determined and recommendations allowing improvement of intrusion detection are presented Ill. 5, bibl. 7 (in English, summaries in English, Russian and Lithuanian).
