       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

       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.
