[Snort-devel] restarting snort as a daemon process

pkill -1 snort 
will sends a signal to snort to start writing into a new file without killing the actual SNORt process.
You can call this from a file say "root" which you can put under /var/spool/cron. 
This file "root" will look like
0,10,20,30,40,50.... pkill -1 snort.
This will make sure this command will be called after every 10 minutes by cron job.
Please let me know if you need any other help.
