    +### Example 3
    +As documented in [METRON-285]( and [METRON-286](,
various components in Metron do not currently support IPv6.  Because of this, you may not
want to send bro logs that contain IPv6 source or destination IPs into Metron.  In this example,
we are assuming a somewhat standard bro configuration for sending logs into a Metron cluster,
such that:
    + * Each type of bro log is sent to the `bro` topic, but is tagged with the appropriate
log type (such as `http`, `dns`, or `conn`).  This is done by setting `topic_name` to `bro`,
setting `$path` to an empty string (or leaving it unset), and by setting `tag_json` to true.
    + * The Kafka writer is set appropriately to send logs to the `bro` Kafka topic being
used in your Metron cluster.  This requires that your `kafka_conf` and `$config` tables are
appropriately configured.

    +redef Kafka::topic_name = "bro";

    I'm obviously missing something.  `logs_to_send` is not `topic_name`?  In my example `logs_to_send`
is not set.
