please update to 6.0.15 (the latest 6.0.x) and see if it is still the case, there have been a lot of fixes.


I have tried version 6.0.15 without this problem, thank you. However, I found another problem. The suricatasc command was blocked when one of the af-packet nics was down. The previous normal command indicates that all network ports are in up state.

You need to make sure the interface is up, otherwise it’s obvious that it won’t work.
