[Snort-users] Stupid Question

When I run Snort manually (non-daemon mode), let it go for a while, then stop it, I get a nice summary screen telling me (among other things) how many packets are being dropped.  I periodically stop Snort and run it manually for 10-15 minutes just to see this summary screen.  On a gigabit link, the packet loss is usually around 1-3%, but I've seen it as high as 40%.

Is there any way to get this same information on the fly when Snort is running in daemon mode?  Possibly even how much is being lost over time?
