But probably not on any of those critical servers themselves. If you 
have a switch on your network with a sniffer port - I would connect to that.

Also, operate a DMZ. Use firewalls on everything (so perimeter firewall 
as well as fire walling between your hosts). If someone it going to 
comprimise you, then
compromising further hosts should be made as difficult as possible.

I recommend Suricata + Snorby as a good way to do the IDS bit.

Oh and once all your hardening and security set up is done, challenge 
someone to pen test it.

I'll do it if you want :)
