Hey, anyone using the A10 EX series link balancer for Internet balancing, L7 bandwidth shaping, Internet usage reporting and/or NATing?

We use it for Nating. Works great.  Finding a particular connection in the logs is tough but that’s NAT.

Same as Bruce. Used it for NAT and was very stable. However, digging through the logs for the translations was hard. Touched on the BW Shaping but didn't get to deep into it and therefore cannot say much about it.

Does it log locally or to a Syslog server?  If local (only), do you have SSH with cat/grep ability or only GUI?

We used syslog to parse it but it still took some work. The GUI was limited on how far you can go back.
