There's an old version of the snort.server script I wrote in the
contrib area on http://www.snort.org. I've updated the old version to
support command line arguments as well as hardcoded values (command
line arguments will override hardcoded values).
The script is written to use ksh but will work properly if you switch
ksh to bash or even zsh.
In addition to starting, stopping, restarting and displaying the status
of Snort process running on an interface, you can run this script out
of cron and it will email you when it has detected that Snort has
stopped running (ie: it has crashed as opposed to you stopping it with
the script). And, just to be extra nice it throttles the emails so
that only one is sent per hour.
You can download this fun little script here:
