Besides Security Onion, you may want to take a look at Autosnort for automating the build of a Snort box:Blog: http://autosnort.blogspot.com/Scirpts: http://snort.org/docs

> I have a specific set of implementation requirements and have been away from Snort long enough that I figured I'd ask before rebuilding the wheel (as fun as that initially sounds)
> six or so years ago, we had a 14 IDS infrastructure that bubbled it's results up to a Qradar box. The sensors were originally Gentoo boxes and worked well, but required a pretty serious investment in Gentoo to keep them running. They were also ONLY snort boxes. Sure, you could hop on them and run a TCPdump, but they were one trick ponys...also importantly: they were on the outside interface, meaning they didn't see NATTed traffic.
> I've used AlienVault and Security onion, and they are both more, and less than I want. I'm having issues with dropped packets on one of the first boxes, and it seems to be kernel related (fiber intel e1000 card on a HUGE DL585, 8 core, 32 Gb RAM, 1 gig feed). I'm still digging into compiling PF_ring support on a 2.8 kernel. Alienvault seemed to be doing too much, I don't need the bells and whistles, and Security Onion seems hell bent to record every single packet, which is great in an analyst box, but it's hell to tune. 
> What I'm looking for is automation to roll out and manage a box that does IDS stuff and receives syslog feeds to give visibility...from 22+ locations.
