Default Log viewing and analysis tools

I have a requirement to allow our security officer to regularly view and
analyze the logging and auditing results of one of the machines in our
lab. He comes from the Microsoft Windows world and is not a *nix
trained person.

I know I can configure logwatch. I can also create a script containing
various 'aureport' runs into a cron job.

Any recommendations for a GUI-based tool that would be easy for him to
learn?

Dave M

Dave:
* I've been using a free solution called LogAnalyzer, and am pretty happy with it:

http://loganalyzer.adiscon.com/

It has a web interface, and uses a database to store all the log info.* It can be easily accessed, given specific filtered queries, etc.
Check out the "Online Demo" page to see how it looks.

Need to analyze logs? Have a look at splunk!

http://www.splunk.com/

Not sure why anyone would use anything else to tell the truth.
