It really depends on what you want to do as far as your parsing is concerned. Python is a fast language to learn and provide a good basis for many maintenance scripts. PERL would be another good choice, though I have very little experience with it personally. You always could just do then entire process using a shell script, but if you have a larger end goal for the logs, such as recording them in a database, or providing a searchable web interface, you may want to try a more specialized language such as PHP.

Ultimately, before we can give you any reasoning for picking a particular language, we need to know what your ultimate goal will be.
