Enable logging for VPC Load Balancers (Region: Frankfurt)

Hi Team,

Currently we have multiple private VPC Load Balanacers deployed in our account. However, we have been informed that the LB logs are sent to us-south (Dallas) region. Since, we are GDPR complaint, it would not be ideal for our logs to travers to Dallas region.

The ask here is to have VPC LB logging - both LogDNA & Activity Tracker enabled for eu-de (Frankfurt) region, and have the following information

  1. Time the request was received

  2. Client's (source) IP address

  3. And details like latencies, request paths, and server responses.

That way we can use these logs to analyze traffic patterns and troubleshoot issues.
