    SCOM collects events and logs them, but a lot depends on what sort of
    a) Analysis you want to do
    b) How many machines
    c|) How often?

    I have used GFI EventManager in the past, but not for a few years.
    I have also done DIY exporting logs with PowerShell and loading into Excel (using macros)

        For A, I suppose I really meant "what do you want to do with the events you collect (e.g. summarise, archive....)

        Do you have a budget for this - if so, I would go with the GFI product (http://www.gfi.com/products-and-solu...-eventsmanager)
        If not, powershell and Excel will do what you need - how are your macro skills?
