Hello all--

Assuming I understand your question correctly, you probably want to add
something like the following to your pool definition:

    header insert "OrigClientAddr:${client_addr}"

That should work, but might eventually cause you some resource issues on
the BigIP. If it's possible for you, you could always span a port from
your F5 on the switch to a cheapo Linux machine or something and tcpdump
to a file, and generate reports from that. Failing that, you could
always tcpdump directly on the BigIP, but just beware that that has
caused some instability in past versions..

Good luck,
-Erik
