Server IP can change in different VIP addresses within the same phisical server but the sender IP stays the same because is thight to the IP where the agent is installed.
For example, in complex infrastructures like Oracle RAC…you can have 4 physical servers but many VIP's and Oracle SCANS for each server, and you end up to have 20 IP's or more just few phisical servers.
This can complicate the definition of rules in the policy and tuples.
It would be beneficial to have the Server IP available in the policy as a dedicated condition and even more in the tuples.
By having the Sender IP in the tuples, you can use just one tuple for all the server IP's under the same physical host.
