There are a TON of them. My favorite:
	SWATCH:		http://swatch.sourceforge.net

Also, you may want to consider:

There are a bunch of other ones out there too... including a java-based web browser app (don't remember what that one is called).

Finally, "Do It Yourself" is trivial. You can capture realtime log info from syslog by piping the output to a script -- just make sure the script is running before you start syslogd or it may hang init. For example
local5.info	| /usr/local/bin/mylogmon.sh

Hope this helps!
