You can always abort the uninstall if for some reason apt-get does want to remove your VPN stuff (in which case, please copy paste the output here).
    Cheers mate,
    Its sorted , i removed snort, but i dont know if i have to use it later for some purpose, but amazingly its uses one cpu completely which is not good.
    I am afraid if i install it again, this will happen again.

    Thanks
    SS

    Ok, but I dont know how you see this, my 1st CPU processor was utilized 99%, when I was using nothing, so its has to do with usage but i dont know if its classified buffers/cache or not.

    Any ways it was snort program, who was using all the memory, I removed it.

    Thanks any ways,
    SS

    In the sysstat package is pidstat, you could use that.
    Ex.
    Code:
    pidstat -r -p XXXX 60 100 >> mem.log
    Replace red with the process id, blue with time between reports in sec's, # of reports respectively. just minimize the terminal, report in home folder
    This may show id if you don't happen to see in htop
    ps -A |grep snort

    Thanks mc4man,
    Its a good advice and I will keep this info handy for future.

    Any ways, I removed snort.

    Thanks any ways,

    You have no need for snort unless you are a hacker/network security kind of guy. If you are unsure, you definitely dont need it.
