For free, I'll add this;

Kiwi syslog (google it and you'll get it)

Cheers,

Not cheap but nice tool. If you want to use it depends on the size of your environment I think.

Sawmill is quite good too:

Or Kiwi -

http://www.kiwisyslog.com

How many Cisco devices do you have?  If you have a lot, then something more enterprise oriented (www.eiqnetworks.com) would be more suitable.

I intend to collect logs from 5 Cisco ASA and 1 Cisco router.  I need something that can offer detailed analysis of logs and report generation e.g. all incoming and outgoing traffic, all blocked traffic, attempted access blocked by the device, etc.  Therefore, I do not think kiwi syslog is a good option.

Have you looked at AdventNet stuff which works on SNMP and also is free for 5 devices.

Have tried out a few of them, and found out in the end that EIQ's Network Security Analyzer seems the most appropriate solution to my environment.  By the way, I have also found out that Sawmill doest not offer a syslog server to capture the syslogs from my Cisco devices.
