Hello

 

Quick question does F5 Log a successful Connection to a VIP and associated communication to Backend Pool Members ?

 

I know we can get that using TCPDUMP but logging perspective does that happen ? I guess not. But why ? May be lot traffic ? If need to be done how can be done ?

No​. By default F5 don't log any succesful traffic log. You can configure based on requirements either HSL or request logging profile to vip.

It's possible.​

Thank You Samir. Is that individual Logging Profile need to be created for each VIP ? And Log will stay Locally at F5 ? or can be stored at remote storage ?

Will you be able to share the KB for Traffic Logging with HSL and request logging ?

Individual logs profile can be attached to vip and send logs locally or remote server. Local log server will fill quickly and ideally all capture log should be send to remote servers.​
