Hi Munroe,

Too bad its deprecate. There is a running docker example 

https://hub.docker.com/r/danielguerra/bro-debian-elasticsearch/ <https://hub.docker.com/r/danielguerra/bro-debian-elasticsearch/>

In the new repo the best way to it would be using the kafka plugin.
From kafka you can use an elasticsearch river.

For people whom are trying to analyze large traffic flows it becomes imperative to not rely on the disk subsystem for transport.  Our current flow looks like:

Moving to NSQ was the only way we could really deploy the service.  I’m open to switching to a different messaging broker, but I think it is a bit over-ambitious to deprecate a plugin that works perfectly well (for NSQ at least) without having a viable alternative (RELP, a better Redis plugin, a dedicated NSQ plugin).
