How can I see to which node the loadbalancer directs the load?

I have 1 Nodebalancer directly available, with 2 Nodes (Webserver with nginx) behind it.
Under the Nodebalancer I see the public traffic that is directed towards it. But where can I see to which node the trafic was directed?

(like a graph or something).
Need this for a university project :/

Thank you in advance!

I don't think there's an option to be able to check where the connection is being send to on the panel, I would recommend logging at your origin server and using proxy protocol.

This will allow you to determine where he traffic is coming from, the load balancer will most likely use an internal IP address but proxy protocol should forward both client IP & node balancer IP.
