    Trawling through log files can be a real pain. I don't do it very often, but when I do, the first 10 minutes is spent reminding myself of where they all are and how best to search them them.

    So this looks promising: http://www.splunk.com/

    Anyone tried it? Feedback? Might take it for a spin myself...

    After reading this yesterday I gave it a go on my test box running TaoLinux4 and it works well. But that box is right in front of me and I can bring up localhost in my browser to access this.
    The pro version is certainly out of my league though.

    Go on, have a guess
    I just use logcheck which does the job just fine for me and emails me anything unusual in whatever logs I configure it to scan.
