4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade brim -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade brim -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

Brim is an open source desktop application for security and network specialists. Brim makes it easy to search and analyze data from:

  • packet captures, like those created by Wireshark, and
  • structured logs, especially from the Zeek network analysis framework.

Brim is especially useful to security and network operators that need to handle large packet captures, especially those that are cumbersome for Wireshark, tshark, or other packet analyzers.

Brim is built from open source components, including:

  • zq, a structured log query engine;
  • Electron and React for multi-platform UI;
  • Zeek, to generate network analysis data from packet capture files.

Please Note: This is an automatically updated package. If the package is outdated for more than two days, please let me know!

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
