Is there any good website to keep Syslog events? I need a website to manage Syslog events and group them based on their priority.

What you are looking for is Splunk

I found that splunk eats a lot of ressources on the server it's installed on, even with a small config. And beware of the spam you'll get from splunk (registration required for download). – petrus Dec 4 '10 at 15:14

Fred's suggestion of Splunk is great, but it can be expensive depending on your log volume. Another (free) option would be php-syslog-ng. You'll need to configure your logs to dump into MySQL to take advantage of this, but once you do that, it's a very nice product.

+1 for Splunk being expensive for anything beyond the 500Mb (I believe) for their "free" offering. – Zayne S Halsall Dec 4 '10 at 17:29
Their pricing model is very strange — free... free... free... free... eight billion dollars! – mattdm Dec 4 '10 at 22:12

I use Adiscon LogAnalyzer. It's been awhile since I've touched it, but seem to remember it is a few PHP scripts. I Installed Apache HTTPD, configured the scripts to point to my syslog files and that was about it.

Octopussy is another free package you might want to check out.
