It is possible for Bro to generate more than one event.
For example, it is possible for one UDP packet to generate
both "udp_reply" and "udp_contents" events.
Similarly, an HTTP request will cause Bro to generate an
"http_request" event and a "tcp_packet" event.

All of the Bro events are described in the documentation:
