If Solaris 8 counts as an open source solution .. go download :) I don't
have that much SMP clue on Linux/BSD, so I can't tell ... AFAIK, you
can't get much more flexibility unless you go for a box that can be
partitioned (and don't forget to tell me where I can apply for a job if
your manager approves it as an IDS ;))

Depends. I like to keep sensors seperate from analysis boxes, so I'd go
for a distributed setup if you can.
