[Snort-users] Snort Processes randonly dies

Well, it happens in Daemon mode, but to see the error I have to run it in a terminal.

snort -I -i eth1 -u snort -g snort -c /etc/snort/snort.conf -l /var/log/snort

This is how it was compiled.

./configure --enable-64bit-gcc --enable-inline-init-failopen --enable-ipv6 --enable-mpls --enable-targetbased --enable-zlib --enable-active-response --enable-normalizer --enable-reload --enable-ppm --enable-debug  --enable-dynamicplugin --enable-perfprofiling --enable-react --enable-flexresp3 --enable-gre --enable-sourcefire

Attached is the snort.conf file.

Can you provide the reproduction steps? What command and arguments you
used? What's the config file?

This issue indicates the buffer isn't sufficient to hold the
additional data or other errors. If you compiled snort without
enabling debug, you shouldn't have this error.
