Bill: Microsoft Network Monitor 3.4 is available. See I do prefer Wireshark myself.

Windows PowerShell offers similar functionality to grep in the Select-String cmdlet. See This goes somewhat against the object-oriented grain of PowerShell, however.

The Windows event viewer can be configured to archive event logs when they reach a certain size, but I don't think this matches the functionality of logrotate.
