Error: hugepages:

Please include the following information with your help request:

  • Suricata 7.0.3
    -Intel Mac OS 14.3.1
  • Homebrew
    Hello I am getting a couple of errors relating to hugepages and I was wondering if anyone has experience with these errors. I did a removal and a fresh install to see if that was the problem. On my linux machine I am able to open /sys/devices/system/node/
    On my mac I get this response
    No such file or directory.
    Error: hugepages: unable to open /sys/devices/system/node/
    Error: hugepages: failed to obtain number of NUMA nodes in the system
    Thank you.

Could you supply:

  • Command used to execute suricata, with all command line options
  • Suricata configuration file (redact any information that can’t be shared)
  • Suricata log file (usually suricata.log)

Here is the command used to start suricata

sudo /usr/local/Cellar/suricata/7.0.3/libexec/bin/suricata -c /usr/local/etc/suricata/suricata.yaml -s signatures.rules -i en0 -D --runmode workers

Thank you for contacting me so fast. Here is what you requested.

Todays_Suricata.log (14.8 KB)
suricata.yaml (83.1 KB)

I just notices there is Lua Output Support. I should disable that one?

Suricata 7.0.3 is erroneously looking for huge page support on platforms where it shouldn’t, and the error makes it looks worse than it is. Suricata should still function just fine and this will be addressed in the next patch release.

Sounds good. Thank you and have a good day.
