Description

If stats section enabled is set to no, adding stats type to eve alert configuration will not cause stats to be emitted over json. Stats type must be added to eve configuration AND stats log must be enabled.

This might just be a documentation thing that using stats type for eve requires enabled. It looks like if filename is not set, no file is written is disk.

I guess we still want to have the option to disable stats.log and just use the stats within EVE?!

Yeah, it's more of a documentation thing, since you can't just use the stats in eve by adding `- stats`, you also have to have stats enabled. If you don't want stats on disk, you have to make sure no stats filename is specified.

I think it's still confusing and documentation only helps a bit. Any thoughts on that from Victor?

I guess we could see if enabling stats in eve or as a separate log could automatically enable the global setting. It is a global thing because it is still usable over unix socket even if all outputs are disabled.
