We've got a central log server (syslog-ng) and I'd like to provide a slick web interface for viewing the logs. Most of what I've seen are either horribly broken, outdated, or just fugly. I'm not very concerned about analysis, though it would be a bonus. Any recommendations?

Up to 500m data is free, any more requires a license key. It will analyze many different kinds of log files, and has plugins for reading other kinds of log files outside of the standard (syslog and apache, and a few others I believe). It has a very nice interface, and is very fast.

I agree with lsd, splunk is a quite nice log aggregator. Talking about commercial solutions you may throw an eye at logscape too ( – desasteralex Apr 21 '11 at 16:57
