X_Forwarded_For and Client IP address

I have a SWS configured to watch the F5 VIP of an application.  I have X_Forwarded_For enabled on this F5.  I also have a SWS for the web tier behind the F5.  Currently the client IP of the web tier data shows the nat address of the F5, not the true client IP (I expected this).  When I look at the header I can see the    X_Forwarded_For IP.  Is there a way to create a custom metric to pull the  X_Forwarded_For client IP, so it will be easier to include in a report.

AMD has a mechanism that replace client IP with the one from X-Forwarded-For. Is it what you're looking for, or you prefer rather to have both (VIP and client) IPs in reports?
