Problem this snippet solves:

Here is an iRule that logs essentially every major iRule parameter during some commonly used events. It breaks out the traffic by protocol (Ethernet, IP, TCP, HTTP) so it can be somewhat vaguely readable while presenting a bunch of data.

The primary use is for debugging so it outputs everything at every step -- more than just stats (the MAC addresses and IP's and ports at every stage...since they can definitely change if you're using tricky iRules!).

Thanks go to Mike Lowell for this contribution.
