mmdbresolve — Read IPv4 and IPv6 addresses and print their IP geolocation information.

Synopsis

mmdbresolve -f <dbfile>-f <dbfile> ] ...

Description

mmdbresolve reads IPv4 and IPv6 addresses on stdin and prints their IP geolocation information on stdout. Each input line must contain exactly one address. Output is in INI format, with a section delimiter named after the query address followed by a set of “key: value” pairs. A comment beginning with “# End” is appended to each section.

At startup an “[init]” section is printed that shows the status of each datbase and of mmdbresolve itself.

Options

-f

Path to a MaxMind Database file. Multiple databases may be specified.

Examples

To resolve a single address:

    echo 4.4.4.4 | mmdbresolve -f /usr/share/GeoIP/GeoLite2-City.mmdb

  Example output:
[init]
db.0.path: /usr/share/GeoIP/GeoLite2-City.mmdb
db.0.status: OK
mmdbresolve.status: true
# End init
[4.4.4.4]
# GeoLite2-City
country.iso_code: US
country.names.en: United States
location.latitude: 37.751000
location.longitude: -97.822000
# End 4.4.4.4
