One way this has been solved in several scenarios is to emit a custom
ping / udp packet at set intervals so you are testing the sniffing
interface as well with a custom rule so that you are testing the
entire sensor.

A good reason to do this is sometimes the promisc flag gets wonky and
you have a snort that's not actually sniffing.
