In this context let me to also advertise my project related to
distributed logging: http://code.google.com/p/greg/
It's an extremely efficient centralized logger with clock
synchronization (more precise than NTP). It's been used in a
production cluster environment with 10000 clients and handled up to
500,000 messages/sec throughput.
(more precisely, this is a from-scratch reimplementation of the
approach used in a closed-source tool I wrote for that cluster
computing project which had those performance characteristics, but
this one also got some testing in much smaller environments and showed
similar performance)

In comparison to your project, it doesn't have any advanced features
like alerts, but it has clock synchronization and is probably faster.
