I'll also bring up the case of using PF_RING with Bro...In that case it
seems the way to do it is to use the PF_RING specific interface notation:


and then let the workers split up the stream as required. I seem to
remember also having to modify a bash script in Bro (and having written to
the list about it) in order to get this notation passed through
properly...I suppose it's time to see if this new version requires the same
tweaking. :)
