Backup Exec [Tool to parse information from log files]

Has anyone pursued such an effort?

I am hoping someone has developed the logic and/or
utilities for automated "reading" of Backup Exec log
files (BEso that I can modify it to report a condensed
version of specific strings of information that are of
special interest.

I have had an idea for doing this as a side project for
many years and wanted to check with members of this
forum before starting from scratch. I realize this is not
a difficult objective for most grep (text pattern matching)
utilities but I always prefer to consider any options of
leveraging my own or anyone else's previous efforts.

I would also like to get any input from others as to what
they use to minimize the effort of reviewing log files.

Does Veritas itself have such tools available?

Thanks in advance,
