A Software called Splunk

Splunk from www.splunk.com is a software that helps

* Index and search all of your IT data generated by your Windows
desktops, servers and applications.
* See all data – registry, event logs, network and security device
logs, system performance – in a single, related view.
* Track down who installed what, when and where. Save and schedule
searches as proactive alerts to improve monitoring coverage over time.
* Speed up root-cause analysis and pinpoint which system is the
problem. Reports and dashboards let you keep watch across the servers
you manage.

You can use Splunk  in the following ( from the website)
