Splunk Add-on for F5 BIG-IP and bot defense logs/events


We've been using the Splunk Add-on for F5 BIG-IP to forward F5 ASM events to our syslog cluster (two Linux servers) that have a Splunk UF installed and monitoring the F5 directory. This configuration has been running for two years with no problems as Splunk ingests the ASM F5 logs/events.

Today in the F5 GUI, I enabled the forwarding of bot defense logs/events to the syslog cluster using the same port and when I check the log file on the syslog cluster, I see the raw bot defense events, but when I check Splunk, I am not seeing the events at all.

Any ideas as to why these raw events aren't being picked up?
