No that's fine, but that is also basically what an IDS/IPS does.

That is why I am wondering why you are asking about NSM in addition,
after having configured Suricata for being an IDS/IPS. If you have any
specific requirements from an NSM that Suricata currently doesn't offer,
please mention them so we can help you reach your goal.
