Im testing different stuff now, and on an old Intel dual core here,
I was seeing 17% packetloss using af-packet with zero copy on a
60Mbit/s link that I feed with tcpreplay. I tried upping buffers,
but not much difference :(

With pfring and pfring aware network driver:
driver: e1000e
firmware-version: 0.15-4

I have 0% packetloss on the same amount of traffic....

I followed:

for the afpacket ( but the --runmode=worker is incorrect,
should be --runmode=workers - there are more such typ0s if
you look at --list-runmodes)

>From the testing Im doing now, about 50% of the times I stop
suricata, it wont... One time it spit out some info about
it taking too long to shut down, and after a little while
killed itself!
