Martin is referring to clustering in PF_RING.  It will split your traffic into bidirectional flows within your kernel and it easy to configure with Bro 2.0-beta (I wouldn't try it with 1.5, it would be a bit of a mess).  If you're running with broctl it will mostly just work with PF_RING out of the box including clustering, you just need to make sure you're building against the correct libpcap using PF_RING's libpcap wrapper and then all of your workers you configure in broctl's node.cfg file should sniff the same interface.
