I am looking for tools that will allow me to aggregate and query event logs from multiple servers.

In my case, this is a webfarm and I need to be able to query the event logs for all of them in one place.

Can anyone recommend such a tool?

There are a few products I am aware of that will do this:

Personally I only have experience with System Center (although I;m looking to setup DAD). System centre has some very nice functionality, but it can feel a bit bloated at times as well.

There are a number of products that can do this. EventMeister is one, at a pretty reasonable price.

+1 For getting there first :) – Sam Dec 17 '09 at 15:29
