I have noticed that in one of my sensors snort is falling down.
Jul 27 18:30:04 xyz snort: PID path stat checked out ok, PID path set
Jul 27 18:30:04 xyz snort: FATAL ERROR: Failed to Lock PID File "/var/run//snort_eth1.pid" for PID "17282" Jul 27 18:30:05 xyz snort: Child exited unexpectedly Jul 27 18:30:05 xyz snort: Daemon parent exiting
I did make an script to check if it is down and up it again case it is true. I need to know what may i have to do for it to never fall down. I remember that when i did use snort 2.3.2 in slackware it never comes down only if i did kill it. But now i am using suse linux and the version of snort is Version 2.8.4 GRE (Build 26)
I need that script to check it for me so i canīt up snort with --nolock-pidfile because it may up another instance of snort.. please help!
ps: i am a newbie
