Hello list,

I don’t know if there is a way to start the Snort process without having its startup messages being logged into syslog -> /var/log/messages?
I’ve tried to start it with the following parameters without success, still log startup messages into the /var/log/messages file.

snort -c /etc/snort/snort.conf -D -g snort -q -N --daq afpacket --daq-var buffer_size=512MB -i eth1
