I'm working on improving the stats output of Bro now too so the 2.5 version will have lots of internal details in the stats.log that should provide a much better picture for people to see what's going on in their clusters (a couple of people have already sent me data and graphs which has been super exciting!).  Capture loss is cool, but there is so much more data available that can really help you get a deeper understanding of what Bro is doing while it's running.
