ACID can analyze packet payload, if you configured the database
logging correctly. However, if you want to practice true NSM (Network
Security Monitoring) I suggest you to take a look at Sguil
(www.sguil.net), which offers a range of features that is of interest
when you are investigating a possible intrusion or compromise.
