Hi Friends,
Our Company Has a Standard Policy to Store Servers Event Logs for Last 90 Days(We Should Have The Event Logs of Last 3 Months to be Available any Time). I have Nere About 25 Servers Running In My Organization and I Feel very Difficult to Login to Every Server on Daily Basis and Check The Event Logs and if Its Nearing its alloted Space I Have to Archive it.
Is there Any Tool / Utility that I can run from my Desktop and Specify A List of Servers so that It Can Give the Status of My Logs and if  its Full / nearing its Aloted Storage Limit I Can  Archive the Logs Locally.

  For 25 servers I think going with one of the commercial software packages mentioned above is the way to go.  If you can't spend any money or want something to get you over the hump while you evaluate software take a look at the command line tool psLogList.  ( http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897544.aspx )

   psLogList has lots of options on dumping events from event logs, and has the option to clear the log.  You could run the tool daily, weekly, monthly, or whatever, to dump the logs to a text file and then clear the log.  You can dump them in tab delimited format for easy importing into a spreadsheet.
