You can use
grep -il <string you want to search for> *

grep -ic <string you want to search for> *

this would print everything and highlight the line containing the word "EXCEPTION"

tail -f *.log | awk '{ x=$0; if(/EXCEPTION/){ x= "\033[1;31m" $0 "\033[0m" } print x}'

replace EXCEPTION with the exception text you want to match against
