Description

I just noticed something unusual on diff OSes too

If Suricata is run with "--engine-analysis" or "-r pcap.pcap -k none" and no log path specified it will not produce any logs. If the log path is explicitly specified on the command line it will produce the logs:

root@d36a085bc4dd:/opt/QA/suricata# suricata --dump-config |grep default-log-dir
default-log-dir = /var/log/suricata/
