I would like if we could load balance incoming syslog messages using something like an F5 load balancer. It appears that this is currently possible with NTA (Can Netflow traffic be load balanced with an F5? ), but support has advised that this is not currently possible with LM. This would be extremely useful for environments with multiple polling engines, this way you can just point all devices to the VIP instead of needing to configure different syslog destinations depending on polling engine. It is also helpful to reduce workload in case we need to move nodes between polling engines.
