[Snort-users] Followup question about Ring PCAP\Snort\Environment Variables

Thank you to all who responded with the method to simply add them to the
command line which launches Snort such as:


exec env PCAP_FRAMES=max snort ${snort_options}






Here's another twist to my situation. We're using SnortCenter to control
the config files and stop\start Snort. Anyone have any idea how to add
these environment variables to a SnortCenter based config? I've been
checking out web-lib.pl in SnortCenter's CGI directory which is read by
index.cgi which appears to control the sensors but I suspect that these
variables would be applied to the account Apache is running under and
not the Snort account.


Anyone have any ideas? Do we need to abandon SnortCenter?
