There are commercial packages that will do exactly what you want. In
addition, there are tools available, I believe some may even be free,
that will let you push your event log messages to a syslog log host. Big
Brother can also be configured to warn you of certain priority types.
Finally, you can use perl to do it all on your own.

In fact, I was skimming _Perl for System Administrators_ from O'Reilly
(I may be a bit off on the title) and I think they used this very topic
as part of an exercise.
