Custom Script for log field addition.

Hi all,

I have a question regarding deploying custom scripts across a distributed bro cluster (manager, multiple worker nodes, etc.). I have a particular custom script which add an extra field to the “conn.log”. When I load this script in my local.bro (via @load myscript) on my manager node and use broctl to deploy this across the cluster I do not get an error. However the extra field in my “conn.log” does not appear in the /usr/local/bro/logs/current/conn.log. I did some looking around and found that the field was however being added to the /usr/local/bro/spool/bro/conn.log. I have tried loading this script in the local-worker.bro, and local-manager.bro but have had no success. Here is my script: module


Looks like my script :slight_smile:

/usr/local/bro/logs/current/conn.log and /usr/local/bro/spool/bro/conn.log should be the same file

/usr/local/bro/logs/current should be a symlink to /usr/local/bro/spool/bro

However, on a cluster the log files should really be under spool/manager or spool/logger, unless you have something like this in node.cfg


instead of


In any case, you should never add things to local-worker.bro or local-manager.bro.
