Daniel Thayer created BIT-1432:

             Summary: BroControl config reloading
                 Key: BIT-1432
                 URL: https://bro-tracker.atlassian.net/browse/BIT-1432
             Project: Bro Issue Tracker
          Issue Type: Problem
          Components: BroControl
            Reporter: Daniel Thayer
             Fix For: 2.5

Currently, if the BroControl config (node.cfg or broctl.cfg) changes while
the interactive broctl shell is running, then a user must exit broctl
and re-run broctl in order for broctl to notice the new config.

BroControl should check if the config has changed each time a
broctl command runs, and issue a warning if it detects a change.
In addition, the "deploy" command should be smart enough to
notice this and automatically reload the configuration.
