I'm guessing you meant network based IDS (as opposed to Host-based)?

Currently, if you are trying to scale Bro as a network IDS the most viable method is to use the cluster deployment using the BroControl utility.  It's currently being used in production at a number of locations.  For more documentation about BroControl and the cluster deployment you can refer to the following link.
