Log analyzer software

In this Ask the Expert Q&A, Michael Gregg explains where to find software that will help you monitor security logs for applications and systems.

We monitor security logs for various applications and systems and are looking for good log-file analyzer software. We would like an analyzer that alerts us if any activities meeting specific criteria are triggered and can provide reports on various logs, etc. Do you know of any good log analyzer software that can meet our needs?
There a variety of log analyzer tools available including Sawmill (www.sawmill.co.uk), Swatch (http://sourceforge.net/projects/swatch/) and NTLast (www.foundstone.com). You can also find additional resources at www.rtek2000.com/Tech/I-SecureLinks4.html.
