You should be able to do this by changing the “LogRotationInterval” variable in /opt/bro/etc/broctl.cfg (assuming you installed bro in /opt/). By default it’s set to 3600 seconds (1 hour), so setting this to 300 should change this to 5 minutes. You’ll then have to stop Bro (broctl stop) and redeploy (broctl deploy) for the changes to take effect.
Hope that helps!
