How can i get packet data in human readable mode and send it in this same email? I try use pcap.log (and tcpdump for read it), but, there are not any kind of identification that i can connect an event with a specific packet data. I think use the time, but is not a effect way to do this(Can be 2 or N events in the same time). Other option is match every attribute from event to package data (ip_source, ip_dest, port_source, port_dest, protocol, time etc). But, i think that isan't the best way to do the job.

I'd look at the eve.log instead of the fast.log. It gives you the
option to include the payload (a little different from the packet,
usually more useful) in a printable format.  Its also JSON, so
depending on what you are using for your script, it may be more useful
as well.
