Most of the logs are in /var/log/

for startup logs check
dmesg

for system logs check

tail /var/log/messages

What is it that you want to analize the logs for. There is a wealth of information available in these logs, but if you are not at least somewhat familiar with the system it mostly will look like greak to you.

The most common software used for monitoring/analyzing these logs is on your system and is called quite appropriately logwatch.

It process your log files and sends you a summary email of the results. Typical info in one of these emails is list of any iptables firewall blocks assuming iptables is configured to log these.

Session logins, sendmail activity, SSHD logins, Disk Space summary.

It is definately the place to begin, it is configured via the /etc/log.d/conf/logwatch.conf file.
