look at find-file-hook and after-revert-hook

does something like 

          (add-hook 'find-file-hook
                 (lambda ()
                   (when (and (buffer-file-name)
                              (string-match "\\.log\\'" (buffer-file-name)))
                     (highlight-lines-matching-regexp "ERROR:" 'hi-red-b)
                     (highlight-lines-matching-regexp "NOTE:" 'hi-blue-b))))

work for you?
