Maybe you should try Linux on Intel or one of the BSD's?

Seriously, you're hitting pretty uncharted territory with this on a 9K.
People are successfully running Snort on most Linuces, *BSD, AIX, and
Slowlaris, but there's probably a handful of people (at best) doing anything
with Snort on HP, and you may be the only person on the planet running it on
Debian on HP. :) 

Here's some googling of the list for Snort on HP:


Hate to waste that 9K, though... Howzabout running the DB / web server /
Acid on it, and using an x86 box for the sensor? Should crank it out pretty
good with that setup.
