Connection rate limit logging

Hi,

 

I have activated the Connection Rate Limit on one of my VS. When a client hit the limit I can see that message in log: "err tmm[11843]: 01010251:3: Virtual /Common/vs_myvsname_80 exceeded configured rate limit."

 

Is there a way to log or show the client ip who trigger the connection rate limit?

 

Thanks

 

Pat

Hi,

 

To be more accurate with my question, I configured it "Per Virtual Server and Source Address" mode to help us detect DoS. And I would like to be able to grab the client IP.

 

Can I manage the connection rate by the GUI with that mode and do a log entry (maybe with an iRule) when it's triggered?

 

Thanks

 

@PatPerron_18894did you ever come up with a solution for this?  I just started using per-virtual & per-source ip rate limiting as well and the useless log spam is pretty annoying.  Whenever possible I prefer to use built-in functionality.
