Daniel Thayer commented on BIT-1432:

Branch topic/dnthayer/cfg-reload in the broctl repo contains
changes to allow broctl to reload its config.  In addition, improvements
were made to some error checking regarding local IP addresses,
improved checks for dangling Bro nodes when the config is reloaded,
and better validation of config option values.

> 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.
