[Oisf-users] Is is possible to restart suricata with zero drops when suricata-IPS crashes

You could use something like Nagios to monitor the suri process and
start a new one if its not running.

You could also have a cron job that runs every minute that does
something like this:

> if [[ ! $(pgrep Suricata-Main) ]]; then /usr/local/sbin/warm_boot.sh; fi

This just checks if Suricata-Main is running, if not it will launch the
exec wrapper.
