The charge of snort in freebsd is very low, except when attack occurs.
There is also Guardian which can add rules to block the recognized attacker.
I don't think of another box, keep it close to the network for quick

You might be able to get close by enabling the remote syslog feature and
then running some of the log monitoring/analyzing tools on a different
machine. SNORT can take a pretty good bite out of your available CPU,
which would be an issue on embedded systems like the Soekris boxes.
Or else, bridge a third interface to the WAN side and then use an external
box to SNORT that.
