The most smarter you can find is you brain.  Logcheck is very useful and
does not send many e-mails if you know how to configure correctly.  

In other words, if you don't want to see some messages, so add theses
messages in appropriate ignore file...

Here, each week, in one log file, I have approxymately 800 000 lines, and
I use logchecker to search some words (and discard other words) to put in
report and e-mail it to me, and (it's luck or it's a good configuration?)
each e-mail which I had recieved are useful for me.
