Log file monitoring

Looking for reccomendations on the following:

Have several processes that are kicked off nightly. Each process applies its progress to its applicable log file. I am not concerned about parsing the logs for success or failure, I am more concerned about being notified when  something hangs and the log files stop being written to prior to completion. I want to use logmon or dirscan to tell me activity has ceased before completion, but the problem is there is no concrete  stop time for the processes (it varies).
