To make swatch parse multiple log files at once from a central syslog server use the following command from any bash compatible shell:
swatch -c ~/.swatchrc --tail-args '-q -f -n 0' -t "`find . -name *.20080104 | xargs`"
Of course you can substitute
~/.swatchrc with your own swatch config and
*.20080103 with your own search criteria.
