You can use OSSEC (http://www.ossec.net/) to monitor your log files for
you. It's pretty easy to set up and then you can set up your own custom
filters like below. When OSSEC finds a match in the log it will email

For example we have OSSEC monitoring a few syslog messages like:

<rule id="100002" level="3">
    <description>Unauthorized access.</description>

<rule id="100003" level="10">
    <match>Privilege level set to 15</match>
    <description>User has entered enable mode.</description>

Hope that helps.
