BY professional do you mean commercial, as in $$$$?

Im not familiar with solutions that collect the logs. But, Enterasys
Dragon Security Command Console in a Security Information Manager

It will do way more that what you looking for.

IMO, you should providing the level of monitoring nad correlation that
this solution provides, at a minimum. <- again at a minimum.

signature detection/protection, syslog, NBAD(google if you are not
familiar), NetFlow, etc.

But if you are only interested in what can be monitored on a linux/unix system,

check this guy out. Marcus Ranum.
His site:

Click on 'Papers' and then click ' Artificial Ignorance' for an
enlightning and insightful method of thinning the log pile to entries
of interest.

Good luck and I think you will enjoy the link provided.

p1g out.

If you spend more on coffee than on IT security, you will be hacked.
What's more, you deserve to be hacked.
