[Oisf-users] pcap's on alerts

This is something I'd be very interested in as well.

I've been maintaining a buffer pcap file on my servers to ensure that I
have enough information to find out what may be triggering an alert. It
would be much more effective to only log the traffic coming through when an
alert is triggered (or a predetermined list of alerts) then store the logs
based on importance, etc.

Any info you have would be awesome!
