SRX240 web filter results by email or.... ?

I'm using an SRX240 for web filtering.  Ideally, I'd like to receive a summary email every 8 hours or so that lists all the blocks that occurred.  (I believe that 8 hours will generate a manageable-sized log - but that's a good question).

So, I guess this means collecting the results in a log somewhere / somehow.
Sending the log out via email.
Repeat and delete the old log.

How might one do this?

Logs generated by different daemon have different keywords. For webfiltering we can filter logs on keyword WEBFILTER_ using CLI as below:
set system syslog file webfilter-log match WEBFILTER_ any any

Here we create syslog file named webfilter-log.

Now we can create this file on the SRX itself and then create a shell script which would FTP/SCP file to the designated server [using crontab] and then delete the file from SRX.
Once the file is on FTP/SCP server there can be another script running which would pick and email the file.
OR we can have SRX send logs to a remote syslog server and there you can work on the logs as you need.

Also, have a look at KB: http://kb.juniper.net/KB28213

Thank you.
