Thanks for any assistance.

I'm runnig snort 2.9.6.2 and using an Emulex DAG card as the monitor
interface. I'm running
8 snort processes in a balanced stream configuration.  After starting
snort, I notice that some times it creates 2 or even 3 log files in
/var/log/snort.  I'm wondering why it creates 2 or 3 and not just 1.

-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 0 Jan  6 11:35 alert
-rw-------. 1 root root 0 Jan  6 11:35 snort.log.1420562102
-rw-------. 1 root root 0 Jan  6 11:35 snort.log.1420562103

Thanks again.
