Hi... i was previously using snort 1.62 and before i had scripts to
periodically delete my /var/log/snort directory while the snort process was
still running...this caused snort to automatically create a new alert file
with the new logs... from that period on....  i just recently upgraded to
1.63 and this feature doesn't seem to work... the new alert file is not
created unless i kill the old snort process and start another one..... can
anyone help with this??/

I am using redhat 6.2

with snort command:

snort -de -i eth0 -c /rules.file
