We are currently using Splunk and it's pretty amazing software however, is there any free alternatives out there that I can utilize.

I have had good luck with the free Kiwi syslog server.

As far as running a centralized syslog collector, there are many alternatives, syslog-ng being one of the most popular.  However, splunk provides the additional indexing and correlation capabilities that set it apart.  For this, you could look into using something like syslog-ng and putting logs into a MySQL DB and using one of the few web based UIs, such as php-syslog-ng to use as a search tool.  Splunk defnitely has the upper hand in how it indexes and its UI, however, the options mentioned do  make for a really decent fully open source alternative.

I was looking at syslog-ng do you have any  technical articles on setting it up either on a debian/fedora/ubuntu system?
