There are several aspects to this.

Is it possible to obtain the IP address for a connection, and how
expensive is it to do so?

Note that JMeter does not do DNS resolution directly; is it possible
to access the appropriate connection details?
Using a separate lookup will be expensive.
Also in the case of load balancing DNS a separate request may return a
different result.

Which protocol types should be supported?

Should the details be stored in a sample result?
This will potentially increase storage requirements, as well as work
to add the new field to configs and logs.
Or would it be sufficient to provide on-demand access, i.e. provide
access to a method that returns the IP somehow?

I suspect even the simplest implementation will be quite a lot of
work, so what are the use cases for this feature?
