	From the man page:
              Causes the program to dump its current packet statistical infor-
              mation to the cosole or syslogd(8) if in daemon mode.

	So assuming you're using a Unix of some kind, just send
it a 'kill -s USR1 pid' where pid is the process id for snort.
And you'll have to find where your syslogd dumps the messages of
course.  :)
