Have you checked out SnortSnarf?  It can be used in batch mode and 
has even been used successfully in semi-realtime mode (key to that is 
the # of alerts (not overwhelming) and adequate RAM).  Pretty soon we 
expect a SnortSnarf input module to be available that can read from a 
database.  You can also check out Demarc, which was partly inspired 
by SnortSnarf; I haven't tried it to know whether to suggest it or 

If you are interested in an appliance, you can also check out Silicon 
Defense's commercial offerings, which now include a console.  There 
are other players in this market too.

Good luck,
