Ahh, I see what you mean! If it’s possible to omit copy-iface, you’ll have to be very explicit in the documentation to say this is for separate, non-inline sensors, so users don’t get confused.

However, although I have a limited knowledge of C, line 203 onwards in https://github.com/inliniac/suricata/blob/master/src/runmode-netmap.c would suggest that it requires a copy-iface directive. I think the code was written with inline sensors in mind.
