You can create charts showing realtime bandwith usage on each of your
routers.  I also use it to check bandwidth on my web servers.  With a
glance, you can tell everything is "OK", "abnormal", etc.

No IDS, but it is great as a enhancement/replacement for
mrtg/rrdtool/nagios.  ( I run all three)

Let's face it, there's no Hollow Earth, no robots, and
no 'mute rays.' And even if there were, waxed paper is
no defense.  I tried it.  Only tinfoil works.
