Good morning,

I have installed Suricata 6.0.3 under FreeBSD 13-p3 host from source using the following compìle options:

./configure --prefix=/opt/suricata --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --disable-gccmarch-native --enable-profiling --enable-profiling-locks --enable-netmap --enable-pie --enable-rust --enable-gccprotect --disable-suricata-update.

All works ok except when I try to stop suricata process:

I have the same problem, but also have a problem with the daemon no
longer generating alerts. It will work for a few min to hours and then
it just stops.  Apart from the graceful shutdown, does it actually work
for you for any long period of time ?


Hi MIke,

 In my case, Suricata triggers alerts, detects anomaly traffic, show statistics, etc … all It seems to work ok, except when I am trying to stop the daemon.

 I am using virtue Nic drivers and autofp as a runmode option.

 IMO problem is related to this issue:
