Bro normally logs connections at the end of the connection, but this can cause trouble for incident responders in the case of very long lived connections that end up being unknown to defenders until too late.
This package provides a new log named conn_long which will log "intermediate" conn logs for long connections. It's logged into a separate log stream to avoid confusing the semantics of the normal Bro conn log which users can assume only contains "complete" connections.
The script will also generate a LongConnection::found notice whenever it discovers a long connection.
