I wouldn't bother with unified2 unless you have a specific requirement for
it. Instead check out the eve log, "tail -f /var/log/suricata/eve.log".
All recent versions of Suricata can with it enabled by default.

Alternatively look at the  fast log (/var/log/suricata/fast.log).  Both
fast and eve are text. Unified2 is a binary format.
