how do i run a grep across all logs, as in 'grep a-string /home/*/logs/*'

If the logs are all immediately in the relevant logs directory, what
you've typed in your question is a good start.  If the logs appear at
different directory depths, then maybe you need find and xargs.  Say
something like

	find /home/*.*/logs -type f | xargs grep a-string
