Associating the profile to a virtual server

The log profile you created must be associated with a virtual server in the Security Policy tab. This association allows the virtual server to process your network firewall events, along with local traffic.

About this task

Take the following steps to associate the profile to a virtual server.


  1. From the navigation menu, select Local Traffic > Virtual Servers.
  2. Click the name of a virtual server to modify.
  3. From the Security tab, select Policies.
  4. From the Log Profile list, select Enabled.
  5. From the Profile field, in the Available list, select Logging_Profile or the name you specified in Creating a logging profile and click <<.

    This clicking action moves the Logging_Profile option from the Available list to the Selected list.

  6. Click Update to save your changes.

    The configuration is complete. The log source is added to IBM® QRadar® as F5 Networks BIG-IP AFM syslog events are automatically discovered. Events that are forwarded to QRadar by F5 Networks BIG-IP AFM are displayed on the Log Activity tab of QRadar.
