NAME ^

App::Iptables2Dot - turn iptables-save output into graphs for GraphViz

VERSION ^

This document describes App::Iptables2Dot version 0.1.0

SYNOPSIS ^

    use App::Iptables2Dot;

    App::IpTables2Dot::add_optdef('unknown-opt=s');

    my $i2d = new App::Iptables2Dot()
    
    $i2d->read_iptables(\*STDIN);
    $i2d->read_iptables_file($fname);

    print $i2d->dot_graph( {showrules => 1} , @tables);

DESCRIPTION ^

INTERFACE ^

new()

Create a new App::Iptables2Dot object.

dot_graph( $opt, @tables )

Returns a description suitable for the dot program of the iptables rules from the given tables according to the options given in $opt.

Arguments:

$opt

A hash reference with the following options:

edgelabel => 0,

With a true value edges may be labeled with the interface that determines the matching rule for the jump.

omittargets => '',

The given targets will be suppressed in the dot graph. This only works together with option showrules.

Multiple targets are separated with comma (,). For instance:

 { omittargets => 'SNAT,DNAT',
   showrules   => 1,
 }
showrules => 0,

With a true value all rules of a chain will be added to the node representing that chain.

showunusednodes => 0,

Usually chains with no jumps to other chains or targets will not be shown. With a true value these chains show up in the graph.

@tables

An array containing the table names we are interested in. Namely filter, mangle, nat and raw.

read_iptables( $input )

Reads the output from iptables-save from the given input stream.

read_iptables_file( $fname )

Reads the saved output from iptables-save from the file with name $fname.

App::Iptables2Dot::add_optdef( $optdef )

This function is not bound to an App::Iptables2Dot object.

You usually want to use this to extend the rule parser with the given option definition if you find that the iptables-save output you analyze uses an option that the rule parser didn't know.

DIAGNOSTICS ^

can't open file '%s' to read iptables-save output

Method read_iptables_file will die with this message if it could not open the file given with $fname.

unknown argument in rule: %s

The rule parser will die with this message showing the rule for iptables-save that contained an unknown parameter.

Since the rules are parsed by GetOptionsFromString() from module Getopt::Long, you may workaround this by adding the unknown option to the array @optdefs at the top of Apt/Iptables2Dot.pm. After that please file a bug at https://rt.cpan.org/ or send me a notice at mamawe@cpan.org to have it fixed in one of the next releases of this distribution.

Alternatively you may want to use App::Iptables2Dot::add_optdef() like this

 App::Iptables2Dot::add_optdef('unknown-opt=s');

if the rule parser dies with message unknown argument in rule: --unknown-opt arg ... and you don't want to touch the library file Apt/Iptables2Dot.pm.

unrecognized line: %s

The function that read in the output from iptables-save found a line that it could not interpret and died in grief and despair. If you think the line ist valid output from iptables-save, please file a bug at https://rt.cpan.org/ or send me a notice at mamawe@cpan.org.
