       broctl - interactive shell for managing Bro installations


       broctl <command>


       broctl  is  an  interactive interface for managing a Bro installation which allows you to,
       e.g., start/stop the monitoring or update its configuration.

       Before actually running broctl you first need to edit the  broctl.cfg  ,  node.cfg  ,  and
       networks.cfg  files. In the broctl.cfg file, you should review the broctl options and make
       sure the options are set correctly for your environment. Next, edit the node.cfg file  and
       specify  the  nodes that you will be running. Finally, edit the networks.cfg file and list
       each network (see the examples in the file for the format to use) that is considered local
       to the monitored environment.
