Hi, I am looking for a utility that will monitor firewall and router log activity with a gui dashboard type interface.   I would like to be able to view malicious connection activity as well as the ability to monitor end to end connections and activity such as dropped packets for certain flows.  Any suggestions or links would be appreciated.  

Thanks,

You can also take a look at;

http://www.kiwisyslog.com/

They provide a free syslog utility and most of the people use that for syslog logging.

Cheers,

Thank you for the suggestions, I have used kiwi, I don't think it is user friendly enough, basically it seems like just a spread sheet of the events, I would really like something with a better gui, that can do charting and trneding as well.  I will have to take a look at analog, thank you for the suggestion sri.
