Michal Purzynski commented on BIT-1363:

No, I used unmodified Bro 2.3 and started it on a router with a configuration like this




Bro starts with a single worker and logs are generated.

> Let's have a support for packet capture with the AF_PACKET sockets in multi worker configuration.
> Bro can use a single worker with af_packet, I have tested and it works, but having a direct support for multi-worker load balancing would allow to avoid the pf_ring for many deployments with the traffic level where DNA / ZC / Myricom / DAG is not required.
