F5 has been placing their traffic management software on top of Linux for years.
[root@f5-x:Active] config # uname -a ; rpm -qi tmsh | grep Vendor
Linux f5-x.corp.local 2.6.18-164.11.1.el5.1.0.f5app #1 SMP Thu Apr 8 19:23:04 PDT 2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Version : 10.2.0 Vendor: F5 Networks, Inc.
That's my question as well. What level of logging is acceptable?
- httpd access logs and mail syslog messages
- Source addresses to destination 80/tcp and 25/tcp
- IP headers that hit a mail or web server
- Full packet captures for all daemons
- Full packet captures of all traffic
This is not very well thought out. There are so many ways to proxy, encapsulate and encrypt traffic, logs would be useless.
