Configuring Syslog Server for a Specific Virtual Server

Hi, guys   I have an application in BIG IP, according to the image.   I need all the IPs that have accessed VS_APP1 to be registered on the syslog server.   Someone could help me set this up...

    I haven't used the virtual server's Request Logging profile much, but was able to create a profile that logs the source IP address of the connecting client:

    In the Request profile Template section, I simply entered:

    Client IP is: ${CLIENT_IP}

    And it was sent to the remote syslog:

    14:10:53.969588 IP > [|syslog]
            0x0000:  4500 0037 cb69 4000 ff11 6da1 0a0c 1778  E..7.i@...m....x

    Hope this is useful!
