Python, Creating program for event viewing

I am testing the product solidcore. During testing, we look at the logs to see what exactly happened in the application.
The log we observe is tomcat.log since the produce is using tomcat. The log can become huge (around 80 to 100 Mb).
I want an application which can display me this log file and refresh it every few seconds (since the log file may change every second).
The app should be really fast.
My brother and friend Justin suggested Python. So did a good office colleague of mine. I am going to read something more about Python and see what it can do.
From the experts
PyDev is a free Eclipse plug-in that transforms Eclipse into a powerful Python and Jython development environment.

Complete Install:

There is a 'complete install guide' at http://www.fabioz.com/pydev/manual_101_root.html so, if you have any problems in the install, that's the place you should check (it also guides you through configuring pydev correctly).

This is the product I am working on (testing and QA).

It is a cool product!! about change configuration management.

http://sqlzoo.net (interesting site for various SQL queries for various DBs)
is there any tool/application/method by which we can download an entire website?
I am trying website puller from "http://www.safe-install.com/programs/website-puller.html".

The test would be : What tool could copy the website "http://sqlzoo.net/" for me without charging me a dime?
