[Bro] Change location of log files?

Broctl.conf file has a logging location. Scroll down to find it. Default place for it is /usr/local/bro/etc/broctl.conf

You can specify where both the current and rotated data is stored separately. This is what I have, the defaults are commented out:

# Location of the log directory where log files will be archived each rotation
# interval.
##LogDir = /usr/local/bro/logs
LogDir = /data/log

# Location of the spool directory where files and data that are currently being
# written are stored.
##SpoolDir = /usr/local/bro/spool
SpoolDir = /data/spool
