Webservice Load Balancer Access Logs & Metrics

Hi everyone -
Quick poll to see how others have gone about this:
When running a public webservice (in our case a docker container with a JVM), I’d like to be able to see http request metrics as captured by the load balancer. Just basic access logs with data points like URL, referrer, remote IP, processing time, request and response bytes and http response code.
This is especially helpful in detecting server timeouts (if they happen) and allows for tracing of requests back-to-back.
Coming from Heroku, these were merged in with the application’s logs, which was quite helpful given there we also did not have access to the LB.

There’s a planned feature request that’s been out for a few years:

Until that’s available, my question to the community:
How have you solved for this?
