    If I write a kernel module using netfilter and incorporate some huge login in my hook functions, what is the problem ?

    Will it just slow down the applications performance or cause some other problems ?

    I think it would depend on how "massive" is your hook functions. the slowest process on computers, are HD IO think about this....

    what kinda hook are you trying to grab....

    I intend to capture every singe packet, give it to a user space program for examination and based on it take some action on the packet.

    What is the best approach/technique to do this fast ?
