Reset stats values transmitted in the "stats" event_type

Want to use the stats info to do anomaly detection. Would be much easier if I could trigger a reset on the system rather than trying to do deltas in elasticsearch.

Have not been able to find a way to reset the counters transmitted in the stats events.

Hi Dave,
Welcome to the community!

You can include deltas for the statistics – see the following section in suricata.yaml

        - stats:
            totals: yes       # stats for all threads merged together
            threads: no       # per thread stats
            deltas: yes        # include delta values

When deltas are enabled – they’re off by default – additional statistics will be included. The suffix _delta will be added. E.g., there will be a statistic for ethernet and ethernet_delta

Hope this helps.
