[Oisf-users] HTTP Logging Update

today I had a problem with one of our sensors, it stopped logging HTTP and DNS 
(no matter what logger was enabled).

I tried all the tricks int the book, restart, change the BPF filter, 
disable/enable VLAN tracking, ... nothing worked.

I could see the packets arriving with tcpdump, Suricata was receiving the 
packets and there were no problems (drops, gaps, ...).

Without any other option on the Suricata side, I decided to re-create the SPAN 
configuration. It "magically" started to work again. I wrote "magically" 
because I still don't know why it stopped working since the switch wasn't 
messed with and Suricata is still running with the same configuration it had 

Anyway, a good thing to try if you a have a mirror port configuration :)

Hope it helps,
Duarte Silva
