You can use snoop -c maxcount common, where "maxcount" is number of packets captured before quit.

For example, if you want to capture 10k packets in each file, something like:

for i in 1 2 3 4 5
do
snoop -c 10000 > snoopfile$i
done

Gangos,

Just to make sure i understand your logic. I  was running the following command:
 snoop -c 10000  -v -tr -o /snoop1out.pcap -d e1000g3 &

when i use your loop with my command, will this run the snoop until it reaches 10k and then generate another file? After it write to the file it it goes back and increment the loop count and does it again until it reaches 5?

for i in 1 2 3 4 5
do
   snoop -c 10000 -v -tr -o /snoop1out.pcap -d e1000g3  & > snoopfile$i
done

Gangos,

your soluction worked with a minor variation:
using the redirect ">" to a file does not let the file be red by wiereshark. Ineed to use -o  "file". So i changed to code below and it worked.
 
for i in {1..10}
 do
    snoop -c 10000 -v -tr -o /snoop1out.pcap -d e1000g3
 done

Thank you very much. Your suggestion was very helpful.
