I cannot comment on Linux and networking equipment, but Windows allows for event log forwarding for a centralized solution.

Looked at splunk, it looks pretty good. Looking for opinions from people who have used it in an enterprise environment.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

If you just want to collect logging, then syslog-ng and kiwi (mentioned above) are the obvious ones.

If you also want to actively monitor devces, software, functionality, etc, then also have a look at Nagios, Zenoss and OpenNMS.

I've used syslog-ng, kiwi, and splunk.

The advantage of splunk is it can do indexing so that searches can run real fast.  The dis-advantage is that if you log more than 500MB in a day, you have to pay in order for it to do the indexing.
