I have a lot of log info on my 3800 series router. Are there any utilities that I can use to organize and make sense of all those warnings and alerts? Thanks

You can poll information to get interface status/bandwith etc.

Check PRTG Network Montior: www.paessler.com

Or you can set up a syslog server (like graylog2) to receive all those messages.

The reason I ask is because I want to look for errors (if any) from the VPN. I can use a spreadsheet and sort everything out. But some manual process needs to be involved.

There is no one tool to do everything.  But take a look at http://blog.securityonion.net/p/securityonion.html  It is a Linux distro with serveral tools built in
