[Oisf-users] Suricata seperate Rx/Tx connection

This is what we are doing using a port channel on the Arista.   Rx and Tx traffic from the same host will be directed to the same RX interface of a single NIC on our sensor.

Basically all you have to do is tell suricata which runmode you are using, like –af-packet and then configure both interfaces in the suricata.yaml.

Check out this guide from the great pevma

Hi Cooper

Sorry for not asking the question correctly. As I understand, Suricata needs both direction of flow in single instance to be able to analyse traffic. In our case, we are using two interfaces say eth1 and eth2 for traffic capture, so can I tell suricata to use both interface together and how ?

Thanks and regards
