This has come up before, but I'm specifically interested in running over
Gbytes of syslog files. I've tried a couple of perl-based scripts, but
I've had to kill them when they hit 800M RAM and were still growing...
Most suffer (understandably) from the fact that they read in the entire
file before producing the stats. I guess I'm looking for a program that
sort of reads in a days worth of data at a time instead of the entire

[I'd love to just use ACID - but I have a distributed IDS network with
separate MySQL servers - and I've never found out how to merge such
databases back into a single one to do a stats run on...]
