Paolo Galtieri created BIT-1165:

             Summary: [Bro] cron: error running update-stats
                 Key: BIT-1165
                 URL: https://bro-tracker.atlassian.net/browse/BIT-1165
             Project: Bro Issue Tracker
          Issue Type: Problem
          Components: BroControl
    Affects Versions: 2.2
         Environment: Linux Fedora 19 on x86_64
            Reporter: Paolo Galtieri
         Attachments: broctl.cfg

I have configured bro so that all log files and spool files are saved to an external hard drive.  I have modified the broctl.cfg file to point to the new locations.  However, I continue to get lots of email about the following problem:

error running update-stats

['cat: /usr/local/bro/spool/stats.log: No such file or directory']

How do I stop this email?

The stats.log file is located in 


ls -l /media/NSM/NSM-SENSOR-2/logs/bro/logs/stats
total 13456
