Questions on using Decoder parsers

I'm trying to solve two separate problems and running into brick walls with both.


Background:  Running NetWitness - Decoders + Concentrators + Broker.


Problem #1:  I want to set an alert if a *packet* has a certain number of bytes in the data payload. 

I went down the road of thinking the snort engine could do this with the "dsize" directive, but it appears this isn't implemented

in the NW snort parser.  Note:  I'm looking for a specific *packet*, not the whole session/stream.


Problem #2: I want to see if an HTTP Cookie matches a PCRE and set an alert.   Similar issue-- thinking snort parser, but PCRE on snort parser only looks at URI. Should I try the Search engine for this (setting PATTERN to be "Cookie: <My PCRE>", or is there a better way?


Thanks for any insight-
