Easily the best description I have ever found for doing this is from

They discuss both configuring syslog to gather the information you require and configuring it to log that info to other servers.

No it will not, Is this what you were looking for?
What it does is allow you to consolidate all of this logging info into a single set of files on a single machine.

If you want to then be able to view them using a web interface I would take a look at the webmin application, at, it provides a very friendly web interface to those logs and much more.
