Unified2 IDS Event (Version 2) are logged for IPv4 packets which contain either MPLS or VLAN headers. Otherwise a Unified2 IDS Event is logged.

  • Note that you'll need to pass -enable-mpls to configure in order to have Snort fill in the mpls label field.

  • Note that you'll need to configure unified2 logging with either mpls_event_types or vlan_event_types to get this record type.
