     [ https://bro-tracker.atlassian.net/browse/BIT-1265?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel ]

Johanna Amann updated BIT-1265:
    Resolution: Won't Fix
        Status: Closed  (was: Open)

I am closing this for now. It is one of the well-known gotchas of the current Bro implementation, that it does not deal well with one-sided traffic.

We should fix that at some point in the future - however, it will not be forgotten and extends way beyond the issues indicated in this bug. If there is any more need for discussion, feel free to re-open.

>                 Key: BIT-1265
>                 URL: https://bro-tracker.atlassian.net/browse/BIT-1265
>             Project: Bro Issue Tracker
>          Issue Type: Problem
>          Components: Bro
>    Affects Versions: git/master
>         Environment: CentOS 6
>            Reporter: Jimmy Jones
>             Fix For: 2.5
>         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?
