Description

It would be useful to have the stats metric for total IPS drops in eve output. Probably similar to the alert count as part of suricata engine output. The field name should be clear that it's ips or alert drops.

e.g.

{"timestamp":"2021-08-03T13:15:28.965147+0000","log_level":"Info","event_type":"engine","engine":{"message":"Alerts: 56893"}}
{"timestamp":"2021-08-03T13:15:28.965147+0000","log_level":"Info","event_type":"engine","engine":{"message":"IPS_Drops: 100"}}

What is the purpose here? We have this as part of eve.stats now, isn't that enough?

Yes, I think so. We have the accepted, blocked and rejected packets at the end of run.

I'll marked this as resolved. Feel free to fix or let me know if I should change something else.

Now that the eve stats contains this information, displaying a console message with the same info is no longer required.
