Checking the snort process from nagios

I’m checking the snort basically like i’m checking most processes, if you’ve been following allong then you’ll already have a check_procs setup.

So I simply edit my localhost.cfg and add:
define service{
use generic-service
host_name localhost
service_description Snort
check_command check_snort_procs!1:1!snort

Edit the commands.cfg and add:
define command{
command_name check_snort_procs
command_line $USER1$/check_procs -c $ARG1$ -C $ARG2$

reload nagios and thats it.
