When you say your ISP I assume you mean a cable provider or similar and 
that you are connected with a machine that you control and have root 
access to. This would have to be the case for you to run snort on a 
linux variant so I will continue on that assumption.

The ISP can not prevent you from installing a database and webserver for 
use locally on your system to make analysis easier, they may prevent you 
from accessing it from the internet at large but I suspect that this is 
an AUP issue and not that they are blocking things. if they were 
actually blocking things I would expect your snort logs to be fairly 
quiet and analysis at the shell should be trivial.

I have not used snortalog so I cannot comment on it's usefulness however 
you might want to look at ACID and the installation manuals linked off 
of snort.org in the docs section
