Alert on error logs (new logs, log rate)

It would be nice to be able to trigger alerts on different error log metrics like:

- new errors (in past week, past month or similar)
- error rate

So we would like to be notified if new error logs pop up and if the error log rate is increasing or hitting some threshold etc.
