[logback-user] Servername in SocketAppender

I want to use the SocketAppender to collect log messages from more than 
one application server.

It general it works fine, but I'm missing the servername or IP address 
of the server who sent the LoggingEvent.
That means I need a layout like this: %date %servername %m%n

In the documentation, I see a SocketAppender property called 
But in the example it only prints %file and %line.

What is the best practise to add the name/IP of the server which sent 
the logging event to the remote SimpleSocketServer?
Best regards,
