Configure IPS on Router

Unanswered Question

Dear All,

I am novice in the security, excuse me if my question is very basic.

I want to configure IPS on Cisco 2821 router. I do not have any server for storing the logs.

Kindly let me know:

Is it possible to configure IPS on a router 2821?

Is it going to increase the CPU utilisation?

Kindly let me have the command/link to configure IPS on the router.
