  I've been using a free solution called LogAnalyzer, and am pretty happy with it:


It has a web interface, and uses a database to store all the log info.  It can be easily accessed, given specific filtered queries, etc.
Check out the "Online Demo" page to see how it looks.

If life gives you lemons, keep them-- because hey.. free lemons.
