Command Line Options
The Config File
The system section isn't very critical. This is mostly where you set
the system ID and that sort of thing. Here's and example system:
Name can be any name that is useful to you. It is used in some of the log files and some of the reports.
ID is just like name, set it to any numeric value you want. It is used in some of the log files and some of the reports.
Setting Threads=0 puts Hogwash into single threaded mode. If you specify more than one interface in the <interface> section and set Threads=0, all the interfaces must be pollable. Hogwash will exit with an error if they're not.
If Threads=1, Hogwash will spawn a thread for each interface and one packet processing thread. For Threads=n, hogwash will spawn one thread for each interface and then n packet processing threads.
