Well, here, on the boat in ibiza, on my blackberry, I don't have the exact name, but we use a php-syslog software, and everything is explained.

We consolidate linux, freebsd and cisco/juniper equipments.

Just hit syslog-ng and mysql in google and you should find plenty of matches.

Of course you may, at least we do it, we have syslog sending to a gew central syslog-ng, and syslog-ng is able to log to a mysql database because it is able to correctly format the logs, then write to a fifo file, which is read by a script and inserted into the mysql database, being further more viewed using php-syslog.

Ps: we use it also to analyse apache logs on cluster configurations, ton consolidate apache logs on the fly using a non blocking technique.

Hmm, okay, that is why I want to do it this way.  We were thinking about
using Splunk, but I don't like the flat file format that is uses to
store its database.  That and I am not too keen on the searching syntax
that it uses, so would much prefer using a MySQL database for this.  Not
only for the easier searching, but for the ability to modify and expand
any web-based log searching interface that we choose to implement.

If you can point me to a decent get-started guide on how to do this
(what you used my help and would be greatly appreciated), that would be
totally awesome!

Hey thanks! For a decent HOWTO when I took your advice and might have to try it on a VM here to see if I can get my Debian VMs (one of which is a very active public news server) and then when that works, move that to a similar implementation to the servers where I work. Again, thank you very very much for the words of wisdom :)
