I don't have experience with Nagios but it works very well with HP OpenView
(I tested with Network Node Manager). Yes, you can do some trend analysis
based upon traps/alerts. However, I don't recommend to merge Snort data with
any production network monitoring system. False alarms do occur which may
panic operators in production environment.
