Thank you for that.  Now is there a way to continue to append to the
snort.log file when logging packets in binary form while not overwriting

you at least have to send a SIGHUP to snort.
kill -1 `cat /var/run/{intf}.pid`
or killall -HUP snort.

Is there any way to reload rules (after making changes) without restarting
snort ?
