Yes, I have been making heavy use of tables ( think a million entries a day and million expires a day) 

Let me figure out a way to upload the scripts on github or send them yours and justin's way otherwise. 

Strangely this code kept running fine for last month and reasonably stable. I am not sure what little thing I added/changed that has caused bro to run but all workers in uwait state with 6% CPU. (I'll be doing svn diffs to figure out) 

Seems like bro is stuck in:
