Wouldn't a possible solution be to install Snort on each server then 
have them all report to a central database?
 From your wording, it almost sounds like you're trying to provide 
protection to individual servers using a NIDS installed on each system.  
You may be better off using a HIDS like Samhain to provide individual 
system protection with NIDS at a few network choke-points, and 
centralize all of the logging using something like Prelude.
