[logs] Exchange Logging

Just wondering how people handle Exchange logs ...
For *nix boxen we use a combination of syslog and remote copy via SSH,
and we can do the same for Windows but are not sure how effective it
will be for Exchange. The Exchange message tracking GUI seems to be the
preferred way to handle things, but again we're not too sure of how
effective it will be.
We store logs for 7 years which is quite simple to manage when they're
all compressed text files on a central log server, but I imagine disk
space will become an issue if we're storing that much data on live
MOM isn't really an option for us at the moment (but may be in the future).
So do you centralise your logs? Use message tracking? Or ...? Is
there third-party (free/open?) software which you use for analysing the
Happy to summarise responses for the list.
