Hi there,

I need to get the amount of packet which have been dropped by snort.

I can get this when runing manualy snort (snort -n 100 -i eth0) in the stat
summary after stoping snort (CTRL+C) like this :

Packet I/O Totals:
   Received:          100
   Analyzed:          100 (100.000%)
    Dropped:            0 (  0.000%)
   Filtered:            0 (  0.000%)
Outstanding:            0 (  0.000%)
   Injected:            0

Is there a way to get this information (dropped packets) in the /proc
filesystem while snort is runing?

I did not found anything interesting after looking at /proc but maybe there
is a preproc to activate or some tricks like this?

Thanks in advance,
