Spanning to another device is a more accepted way to do it, that 
offloads logging, analyzing and viewing on another box that probably 
has more power and memory.  It's always a good idea to keep your IDS 
apart and even hidden if possible.  Then again, for a small home 
network an all-in-one device sure is convenient.
