Hi All,
i'm testing Bro 2.4 in standalone (no clustered) configuration and
i've seen a strange behaviour: below the output obtained from "ps -aux
| grep bro" command

root     16911  0.0  0.0   5544  1524 ?        S    15:08   0:00
/bin/bash /usr/local/bro/share/broctl/scripts/run-bro -1 -i eth1 -U
.status -p broctl -p broctl-live -p standalone -p local -p bro
local.bro broctl br ctl/standalone broctl/auto
root     16917 58.0  4.4 414584 174960 ?       Rl   15:08   9:54
/usr/local/bro/bin/bro -i eth1 -U .status -p broctl -p broctl-live -p
standalone -p local -p bro local.bro broctl broctl/standalone
broctl/auto
root     16924  0.0  1.3 124700 53848 ?        SN   15:08   0:00
/usr/local/bro/bin/bro -i eth1 -U .status -p broctl -p broctl-live -p
standalone -p local -p bro local.bro broctl broctl/standalone
broctl/auto

I don't understand why two processes (pid 16917 and 16924) are
present: only one process should be present .... or not?
Regards,
Vito Logrillo
