If you want to get a little fancy you can try out Scan Map 3D at
http://scanmap3d.sourceforge.net/ . It takes Snort alerts from a MySQL
database and creates a 3D visualization of it.

As for using the same machine to monitor or a separate one.  That's up to
you and how your environment works.  If you have 1 or 2 Sensors with low
traffic then monitoring from the sensors might be easiest.  If you have 3 or
more sensors and high traffic then a separate database/monitoring server is
best.  If this is just for testing/learning then by all means do it all on
one machine.

You might also want to check out SnortCenter
http://users.pandora.be/larc/index.html for managing your sensors.

You can use an ACID console for this work, using a snort sensor logging
to a database. It will update almost on real time.

The only people for me are the mad ones -- the ones who are mad to live,
mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time,
the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn
like fabulous yellow Roman candles.
