I have something similar written late last year, which parses Bro
logs and inserts the data to PostgreSQL. I also have an extremely
alpha version of the web frontend, written in PHP with Symfony framework.
I stopped working on it (due to work commitment, mainly) after realizing
that the best way to do it is by using Broccoli - which up until now I
haven't got around to do.
