We've made some great strides in OpenNMS in the area of syslog event
processing.  The upcoming 1.10 release will be much easier to get
going, particularly since we now have pluggable message parsers -- you
no longer need Wireshark and a black belt in regular expressions to
start receiving events from syslog sources.  We've also made it
possible to split the syslog rules across multiple files, which makes
maintaining your own rules much easier compared to the old monolithic
style.

It's still not going to be Splunk-easy to configure, but it's now
darned close to Netcool OMNIbus syslogd probe-easy.  Plus you get
pretty JasperReports reports based on your events like this one (or
roll your own):

Also flexible event notifications, event de-duplication, and SNMP trap
handling as well as service-assurance polling, performance data
collection via SNMP, HTTP, WMI, SQL/JDBC, and other protocols.

Oh yeah, it's 100% free / libre / open source software.  And you can
get support for it from my employer.

PR hat off,
