didn't you ask this yesterday?  As Chandana Bandara
[chandana at ...12108...]???

Like I asked yesterday??????  Also do you have a rule turned on that
detects large ICMP traffic?

Are you on a switch?  If so snort will not see all the traffic.  In that
configuration you either need a true hub (see the archive) or a tap.
First make sure that snort is working then see if you have a networking
Scan the box or set up a rule to catch all IP traffic
