Hi everyone, everyone knows using PCRE in signatures is bad for
performance, but I've just blogged about how you can make it just a
little bit less bad for Suricata :)

Executive summary: upgrade your libpcre for a good gain in performance.
In Suricata from our bleeding edge git master, much more can be gained.

Cheers,
Victor
