This article by WOH3 shows us how to use swap file instead of swap partition, in case one runs into overheating problems.
I recently installed and configured FreeBSD 10.0 on an old desktop so that I could learn the system. I have been surprised by how powerful it is, and I had assumed that since it was a Unix, that I would know everything about it having had a decade of experience with Linux, but I was wrong. It is still very different, and those differences are what make it a good OS. One thing that surprised me, was that you can use a Swap File (in /usr/swap0) instead of a swap partition.

What is Snort?
It is an open source intrusion prevention system capable of real-time traffic analysis and packet logging.
1. Login to your computer as root or elevate to su2. First we have to compile snort form the ports tree by running this command:make -C /usr/ports/security/snort install allYou will be asked about which support you want to add to snort here you can pick MySQL if you are going to use the server as traffic monitor or instruction detection system. For me I took the defaults only because I capture the files and export them to log file using snort –dev –l . /log then I read them with tcpdump –r. But again it really depends on your needs.
