If you just want an email to be sent you can use
Nagios to monitor the process and send you a email when
the process it's not running.

But if you need SNMP then you have to configure a
SNMP agent in the machine and some kind of script
that checks the running process or the logs and
tell the agent to send a SNMP trap when it detects
the snort process death.

The only people for me are the mad ones -- the ones who are mad to live,
mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time,
the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn
like fabulous yellow Roman candles.
