Have a look at ACID?
ACID can generate graphs with snort data from a
database and can query on and between dates inputed by
the user.
I recently got it working and its a big hit with
management.  They seem to like charts and graphs more
than functionality.  Im not saying ACID doesnt have
good functionality either, its a real nice tool.

If your not talking about numbers of alerts and
traffic   and such maybe Nagios?  I havent looked at
Nagios much.

We were using a Razorback for a while.  All it does is
read the alert log file though.

Do you Yahoo!?
The New Yahoo! Search - Faster. Easier. Bingo.
