[Oisf-users] http.log + rules meta information

We are experimenting with correlation between the fast.log and http.log with some success.  We are storing the information from those two logs into database tables and have written queries that attempt to find relationship between the two logs. The difficult part is fine tuning the query to find exactly that moment in time where the data from fast.log and http.log intersect. It is not an impossible task but just takes some work fine-tuning.

Not right of the box.
It still looks to me that you need to correlate data - but you would like all the information about that specific session to be written in one specific log, correct?

Just to point out entries in the http.log are not directly related to those in the fast.log(alert). In other words - http.log logs all the http requests Suriacta sees, regardless of the fact if alerts are triggered or not.

Suricata also can log DNS,TLS,Files detailed logs (besides alert and
http) - fyi.
