tc Server HORIZON logging capability is critical for accurate forensic analysis. Without sufficient and accurate information, a correct replay of the events cannot be determined. Ascertaining the correct source, e.g. source IP, of the events is important during forensic analysis. Correctly determining the source of events will add information to the overall reconstruction of the logable event. By determining the source of the event correctly, analysis of the enterprise can be undertaken to determine if events tied to the source occurred in other areas within the enterprise. tc Server HORIZON must be configured with the RemoteIpValve element in order to record the Client source vice the load balancer or proxy server as the source of every logable event. The RemoteIpValve enables the x-forward-* HTTP properties, which are used by the load balance to provide the client source.
