Logger is the best in the business, IMHO. Yeah, I work for the company but
I'm very excited about our products and they can do.

You pump your logs into it, it parses them, and then it will also hyperlink
terms/phrases/IP addresses, etc, so you can then click on those to drill
down further into your current search, etc. There are also basic reporting
capabilities. Plus, you can set it up as a syslog server on its own and just
tell everything to send syslog messages to it.
