Tools for system monitoring

Does anyone know of any good tools for system monitoring? I am able to use the output generated by logwatch, but I need to start keeping a closer eye on apache logs and such for security purposes. What tools are out there that are useful for this sort of thing? Basically, I'm looking something that is a bit more interactive and real-time than logwatch. Any recommendations?
