i've been looking for a good open source log management app, so that I can centralize management of my event logs and possibly have a graphical representation/correlation of the data

anybody know of anything out there?
get back to studying!!!

    I have a debian box running syslog-ng.

    It is the central logging for 20 windows 2003 servers.

    Replaced syslog with syslog-ng
    Installed Mysql server piped all logs into mysql server
    Installed php-syslog-ng to search logs
    edited /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf so that if a log comes in of higher than "error" it sends me an email

    I dont know what operating system your on or want to run this on. Syslog-ng is a pretty good solution and its free. If your interested do some googling on syslog-ng / php-syslog-ng and there are quiet a few detailed howto's on setting it up.
