Completely ignore Hosts and Network ranges from all checks

Hello List,

I have a complex Zeek setup where Zeek is listening on a bridged interface which is shared with a lot of other VMs therefore it catches quite a lot of broadcast traffic and others I don't care about.

How can I exclude IPs and ranges from all checks not to have a single log or alert event for those?

I did not find an obvious solution in the generic config files.

There is a reference in the old bro documentation for this here:

But you can add the following to /usr/local/etc/zeekctl.cfg if you
installed the FreeBSD port.

zeekargs = -f 'not host'

This will add a bpf filter to not process the traffic, just like
tcpdump. There are other examples to add this to your Zeek scripts as
