Hello Maxim,

Please see the section under the snort3 manual for loggers:


Its impossible to say what the issue is without a copy of your configuration.

Attached is a basic config that should log any tcp packet.

All I did was run it with this below:

./bin/snort -c etc/snort/maxim.lua -r /home/alewis/Downloads/CURL.pcap -l .

And it produced log files as these (unified log is there):

alewis at ...17722...:/var/tmp/snort++$ ls
alert_full.txt  bin  core  etc  include  lib  log_codecs.txt  share  unified2.log
alewis at ...17722...:/var/tmp/snort++$

Hi snort experts,
    I just tried snort 3.0, and found that it doesn't log the triggering packet of an alert if I use unified2 logger. Is it a bug or am I missing any required configurations? It's very different from snort Many thanks.
