Hyperscan regex engine. The engine uses hybrid automata techniques to allow simultaneous matching of large numbers of regular expressions across streams of data.

The engine follows PCRE pattern syntax, and the regex string must adhere to the documented pattern support. The syntax is not compatible with the default RE2 regex engine. Depending on configured expressions, swapping regex engine may cause match rules to no longer be valid.
