Windows event logs

Experts,

On a windows 7 Pro system, is there any way to configure the event logs to automatically send to a centralized log collector?

Use subscriptions and event log forwarding:

You do need to have at least one Windows Server 2008, Vista, or 7 computer, but the minimum is one. This becomes the centralized logging computer. All other computers running Windows XP, 2003, Vista, 2008, and 7 can send their events to this centralized computer.

There are so many logs and so many entries in each log.  Event Viewer, windowsupdate.log, CBS.log-for example- all create their own list of entries which cover several weeks or months by default.
