    Recommendations for managing log files


    Hey everyone!

    I have a Debian LAMP server that I've set up, and I'm looking for a package that will help me manage and sort through my log files. Basically I want something that will check my log files for me, and notify me via email about anything that merits further examination. Any recommendations?
