I think why you have no responses is what you are asking for is a complete network monitoring application.  It is not a trivial task and perhaps best if you split it down, define what you want to do and how.

e.g. you could have a list of computers for it to scan, and then a VB Script or similar to scan each of those computers for any event logs of those statuses you require.

You then need to think which event logs you want to scan -- application, system, security, dns, etc. depending upon what is on the box, what information you want out, and how often you are going to run this.  

e.g. if you run it once a day do you just want it to look for entries from the last day?

Are you expecting it to tell you about issues as they occur 'live'?

The eventrigger.exe command (look at eventrigger /? or http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb490901.aspx ) can be used to trigger a program to run on a box when a particular error occurs for instance.

hmm, I have around 30-40 computes in my Network, so its not possible to check all the event logs manually, so I m looking for tool/script which can atleast inform me if any error/warning is coming on any of the Servers Application/system Logs.!

Will prefer to run it once in a day.

Better if it can tell about issues otherwise just inform about event source/type and ID, so that i can proceed with required action.

Thanks.

Not a script as such but you might want to look at this:  http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=7AF2E69C-91F3-4E63-8629-B999ADDE0B9E&displaylang=en

EventcombMT - you can give it a domain name, tell it what criteria of events you want, i.e. all errors in system and app log (and tick get all or choose a range of codes) and it will pull them out.  I've used it in the past for pulling out security logs and thought of your requirements when I saw it on my machine this morning... not exactly what you want but easy to use.
