Yes 2.3.3i is the latest version of CSPM that supports IDS.
You also need the latest signature update, but the update only contains configuration file updates and will not affect the issues you are describing.
Cisco has recently (just last week) come out with a new IDS Management product.
Management Center for IDS, and Montioring Center for Security are part of VMS 2.1 (VPN and Security Management Solution). They are web based configuration and event viewing tools that are loaded on Windows 2000.
Users who purchased CSPM as part of the VMS 2.0 Bundle and purchased support can upgrade to VMS 2.1 with the new IDS management tools at no extra charge.
In the FAQ you will see that CSPM 2.3.3i is being discontinued, and users should upgrade to VMS 2.1.
So I would recommend upgrading to the new IDS Management tools using a second system, and run CSPM alongside the new tools. Once your comfortable with the stability and features of the new tools, you can uninstall CSPM.
I had similiar problems. The way I resolved them is to archive the CSPM alarms database every month or more frequent if the database gets two large. One day the my network had a failure and there were a lot of false alarms and CSPM crashed. The problem with CSPM I see is that if the database gets to large, the software cannot handle it. I have a script that I manual run the 1st of every month to archive the database. Contact me if you want a copy, firstname.lastname@example.org.
A couple of weeks ago Cisco annouced the new VMS 2.1.
NOTE: CSPM 2.3.3i could be purchased separately or as part of VMS 2.0.
VMS 2.1 contains two new products specifically for IDS.
Management Center of IDS (used for configuration of sensor) and
Monitoring Center for Security (used for viewing alarms and reporting).
Both of the new products run on Windows 2000 rather than Windows NT.
If you purchased CSPM 2.3.3i as part of VMS 2.0, and you kept up your maintenance contract then you can upgrade to VMS 2.1 with the new Management and Monitoring Centers at no additonal cost.
If you purchased CSPM 2.3.3i by itself, or let your maintenance contract expire then you will need to contact your Cisco Sales Rep or refer to the VMS 2.1 documentation to see what your pricing options are.
