gdnsd_geoip_test - Commandline test program for gdnsd-plugin-geoip maps


  gdnsd_geoip_test [-c /etc/gdnsd] [map_name addr]
    -c            gdnsd config dir, see main gdnsd(8) manpage for details
    map_name      Mapping name from geoip plugin config
    addr          Client IP address to map.


This is a simple commandline test program for "gdnsd-plugin-geoip" map configurations. It parses your standard gdnsd config file, extracts the relevant bits from the geoip plugin section, and processes the "maps" section using the same core code as the plugin itself. It then resolves the supplied IP address against the supplied map name, providing an ordered datacenter list (and edns scope netmask) result.

The input IP addresses on the commandline do not accept CIDR subnet information. This is intentional. Because of the method by which "gdnsd-plugin-geoip" builds, optimizes, and performs lookups on the internal data, the client subnet mask is irrelevant, and the response scope mask is always as specific or general as necessary. To simulate different edns input masks on the same address data, simply zero out more of the right hand bits of the address.

If no "[map_name addr]" is given on the commandline, the program enters a REPL (Read-Eval-Print Loop) mode with a prompt, allowing you to interactively enter several "[map_name addr]" pairs without reloading the configured database(s).
