I just find that the normal error logs and grep or perl get me most
of what I need.

I have $c->info and $c->error and those are just wrappers for
$c->log->info and $c->log->error that tack on the IP, current user,
and a few other bits of common data I find useful when reading th
logs.  Those go to stderr and apache writes those to the error log
and is rotated with logrotate.
