[Oisf-users] Prelude spooler file grows to 100% disk size (suri 2.0.6)

I setup suricata 2.0.6 on a Gentoo Linux box and let it report into Prelude.

  # alert output to prelude (http://www.prelude-technologies.com/) only
  # available if Suricata has been compiled with --enable-prelude
  - alert-prelude:
      enabled: yes
      profile: suricata
      log-packet-content: yes
      log-packet-header: yes

This requires the compilation opts:

./configure --sysconfdir=/etc/ --localstatedir=/var/
-disable-gccmarch-native --enable-gccprotect --prefix=/usr
--enable-unix-socket --enable-luajit
--with-libcap_ng-includes=/usr/local/include --enable-gccmarch-native


This depends on libprelude (1.2.5).

The file /usr/local/var/spool/prelude/suricata/global grows to 100% disk
space once suricata runs for a while.

In fix this with cron (dirty):

rm -rf /usr/local/var/spool/prelude/suricata/global
kill -9 $(cat /var/run/suricata.pid)

Is there any config which would limit this?
