Thanks guys, that helps.  Robin I'll take a look at the cluster, looks like
you have a standalone config in there, so that will have to do for the time
being - won't be getting any new boxes in the immediate future to make a
real cluster.

Fair enough, I'll give that a try.  I liked the idea of the debugger because
you could run through a fairly large pcap and fix most of the problems in
one go rather than many repeated analysis runs.  This way I'll have to carve
out a much smaller pcap that has the traffic to generate the needed events.

If I can't get any further along like this I'll move the config over and
send it to the list.

Thanks for the quick replies!
