[Oisf-users] boot sequence completion indicator

I am currently looking at the log file (suricata.log) to figure out whether suricata has completed its boot up sequence. The suricata.pid  is immediately written when the dameon gets started, and therefore cannot be used to tell whether suricata is ready to start processing packets.

Is it possible to programmatically tell whether suricata is ready ? That is other than by parsing the log file and looking for something like "All AFP capture threads are running." ?

I appreciate any pointers/suggestions. Thanks.
