I wouldn't put anything on it that isn't directly related to its mission.

At most, I'd suggest putting net-snmp on it, denying access from the
untrusted side(s), and polling the box with mrtg/cacti/nagios from
another machine.

Better, I think would be to put ntop on another machine and mirror the
port to which the firewall  is attached.
