>             Project: Bro Issue Tracker
>          Issue Type: Problem

>             Fix For: 2.3
> Branch topic/dnthayer/broctl-fixes contains a collection of small
> fixes and improvements to broctl.  This fixes the memlimit broctl
> option and improves output of the "status", "check", and "start"
> commands.  The rest of the changes in this branch improve
> the way broctl handles various error conditions.
> Here is a list of all changes:
> fix the memlimit broctl option, fix start command helper to report errors,
> prevent bad plugin from crashing broctl, show error message if a
> user tries to use lb_method without lb_procs, prevent infinite loop
> in start command, simplify some code that executes commands to avoid
> a potential broctl hang, add ssh options to avoid broctl hanging if
> a host is disconnected, flush list of dead hosts after each broctl
> command finishes (so that a user doesn't need to exit broctl),
> improved error handling of various broctl commands when a user
> forgets to first do a broctl install, change the way broctl
> writes dynamic state variables to disk to reduce the risk of
> losing important information, added a check if the bro version
> has changed since the last install (if so, warn the user to do
> another broctl install), removed ping from the host alive check
> (these are sometimes blocked by firewalls), improve column formatting
> for broctl status command, improve start/stop command output for
> crashed nodes, changed broctl check command output to be more specific.
