PyFlag

"FLAG (Forensic and Log Analysis GUI) was designed to simplify the process of log file analysis and forensic investigations. Often, when investigating a large case, a great deal of data needs to be analysed and correlated. PyFlag uses a database as a backend to assist in managing the large volumes of data. This allows PyFlag to remain responsive and expedite data manipulation operations". --PyFlag Website
