I think what you are looking for is logcheck or a similar package.
Logrotate only saves and compresses old log files.
~-amaya@io>apt-cache search logcheck
logcheck - mails anomalies in the system logfiles to the administrator
logcheck-database - database of system log rules for the use of log
Other ones you might want to check out:
epylog - New logs analyzer and parser
glogg - Smart interactive log explorer using Qt4
gnome-system-log - system log viewer for GNOME
But from your description of what you are looking for, logcheck is what
you want :)

I don't know splunk and it doesn't seem to be available in Debian.
What is it?

I hope we can be of help :)
