    You tried to view a suricata log in the web gui log browser but PHP ran out of memory trying to render it.

    You'll need to figure out how to make the logs smaller or find another way to view them such as an external log server, grepping what you're looking for in the shell, etc.

  • Thank you for the information.

    For now both Suricata and Snort simply dump the contents of a given log into a PHP data variable and then print the contents of the variable out to the browser. When the log files are huge, this operation exhausts the available PHP memory in the session.

    For now, as @Derelict mentioned, reduce the size of the logs by turning on the log size limiting and rotation features under LOGS MGMT. Keep the max log file sizes to the defaults or only a little larger.

    I'm looking at a future update in the LOGS VIEW code that would output the log data in a series of smaller data blocks.
