I have always been a fan of Splunk. Very good indexing and search functions as well as a bunch of add ons that you can use to make customizations more to your needs.

You are giving us very little information to go on.  

What kind of logs?  From how many machines?  etc...

We use an application from NetIQ called Sentinel.  It is pricey, but since you are not telling us if this is for home use or enterprise, that is my suggestion.

sorry for the little information
it is about httpd/ftpd apache error logs  also for enterprise
total sever is approximately 20
Try using Sawmill.. It's wonderful and ease.
