Thanks for the info. I tried "kill -SIGUSR1 <snortpid#>" and it returned to
the shell prompt. I then did a tail on /var/log/messages, but no stats were
there. Anything I might be doing wrong?

Thanks again

Send snort a SIGUSR1 with kill then check your syslog.

This will dump the statistics including the number of packets, the # 
analyzed and the # dropped into syslog without stopping snort.
