Jimmy Jones commented on BIT-1265:


Might it be better to mark the connection as successful if data is sent? Again, for the single sided case, which I'm not sure how many people are worried about/notice? Otherwise have to set this to a large number, to cover longest possible TCP sessions, but presumably has a big impact on memory usage, as "lone" SYN's will keep state?

>             Project: Bro Issue Tracker
>          Issue Type: Problem
>          Components: Bro
>    Affects Versions: git/master
>         Environment: CentOS 6
>            Reporter: Jimmy Jones
>         Attachments: sample-upload2-all.pcap, sample-upload2-req.pcap
> Attached two pcap samples, one is a single sided version of the other, an HTTP POST.
> When I process the single sided version (sample-upload2-req) conn.log shows two sessions (the HTTP POST tcp connection that has been split) and http.log shows a partial upload. However processing the original sample (sample-upload2-all) everything is as expected - one connection in conn.log and a complete http.log
> Are there any parameters I can tweak to make this work?
