[Bro] Bro for embedded use?

Hey everyone,

I'm currently looking at the effectiveness of using Bro in an embedded platform. We're just going through the process of just getting everything (including all of the libraries) compiled into our build - and we've found that with all the dependencies the resultant package is pretty large!

Has anyone had any experience using Bro in an embedded system?

Because we haven't got it running yet without crashing, we can't assess the extra resource footprint required for Bro. In general (with limited scripts, not handling a large number of connections, sub 1Mbps throughput), what are the memory/cycle requirements for Bro? I realize that there are a large number of variables here so I'm not looking for an exact answer, more of a ball-park gut feeling one J

Thanks in advance,
