Destination
Create a log destination to format the logs in IPFIX templates, and forward the logs to the IPFIX collectors.
Publisher
Create a log publisher to send logs to a set of specified log destinations.
Publisher (local-syslog)
Create a log publisher to send logs to the previously created destination that formats the logs in name/value pairs, and forwards the logs to the local Syslog database on the BIG-IP system.
Filter
Create a log filter to define the messages to be included in the BIG-IP system logs and associate a log publisher with the filter.

Associate a custom DNS profile with a listener to define how the BIG-IP system logs the DNS traffic that the listener processes.
LSN pool
Associate a large scale NAT (LSN) pool with a log publisher in order to log messages about the traffic that uses the pool.
