Hi Alex,
First of all thank you for you quick reply.....
I know about the tag keyword..... Is there any other way so that the entire session can be logged, if alert is generated in any of its packet.... 
The tag keyword only log packets after the alert generated.. and that to i have to specify the number of packets to log afterwards.. Actually I want to log the content of the entire session when any of its packet is alerted......

Assuiming you mean 'entire reassembled session', then what you're after is 
the tag keyword (note, though, that it cannot go back in time and include 
packets that were sent before the alert was generated).
