(perl)script for cfengine analysis

Has anybody written a perl script to analyze automatically cfengine runs? I have
to problem that I get 27 Mbyte(!) logs per day. If nobody comes up with
something useful I will rewrite my own in the near future :)

Greetings,
        Thomas

I simply turned "Syslog = (on)" and used my existing syslog parsing
tools to read the cfengine output on a central loghost. Once my cfengine
configuration(s) started to stabilize I didn't generate too much
cfengine log traffic.

Of course I risk losing logs this way, since syslog over UDP (or even
TCP if connectivity is delayed for more than a moment) is unreliable.
The compromise is worth it in my case, since I didn't need new tools, I
could extend my current ones as needed.
