Net::DNSBL::Statistics - gather DNSBL Statistics
use Net::DNSBL::Statistics qw( run plaintxt htmltxt ); %dnsblcounts=run(\%config,$NonBlockSock,$sockaddr_in); $text = plaintxt(\%config,\%dnsblscounts); $html = htmltxt(\%config,\%dnsblcounts);
Net::DNSBL::Statistics is the Perl module that collects statistics on the interrogation success for a list of IP addresses against a list of DNSBL's. The module is used to implement the reproting script dnsblstat.
With the addition of a few elements, the configuration file for dnsblstat shares a common format with the Mail::SpamCannibal sc_BLcheck.pl script, facilitating common maintenance of DNSBL's for your MTA installation.
The sample configuration file statistics.conf.sample is heavily commented with the details for each configuration element.
dnsblstat responds to the following system signals:
Script is terminated.
Net::DNSBL::Statistics provides most of the functions that implement dnsblstat which is a script that collects statistics from a list of IP address interrogations against a list of DNSBL's
How to use dnsblstat
Syntax: dnsblstat path/to/config.file or dnsblstat -t path/to/config.file dnsblstat -w path/to/config.file
Normally dnsblstat prints a sorted list (by count) of the DNSBL's interrogated with their reply count, percentage of the total count, and any comments from the DNSBL's 'comment' key field in the config file. The 'comment' field may contain html markup text.
i.e. 44 100.0% TOTAL IP's interrogated 41 93.2% UNION of all results 34 77.3% dnsbl.sorbs.net comment ........
The -t switch will print a start and stop time.
i.e. # start: Fri Jan 4 17:46:44 2008 # stop : Fri Jan 4 17:58:21 2008
The -w switch will put the output into an HTML table without the <table> statement </table>>., a commment as above and with an <a href="...">dnsbl name</a> statement replacing the dnsbl name if the 'url' key is present in the config file.
i.e. A one line example corresponding to the text line above: 34 77.3% dnsbl.sorbs.net with a 'comment' key of: 127.0.0.2,5,7,8,9,10,12 and a 'url' key of: http://www.au.sorbs.net/using.shtml <tr class=dnsbl><td align=right>34</td> <td align=right>77.3%</td> <td align=left><a href="http://www.au.sorbs.net/using.shtml">dnsbl.sorbs.net</a></td> <td align=left>127.0.0.2,5,7,8,9,10,12</td> </tr>
Returns the total number of IP's interrogated (IP list less white listed items) and a hash of DNSBL names and their respective SPAM reply counts or equivalent for 'in-addr.arpa' and GENERIC.
input: config pointer, non-blocking socket descriptor, sockaddr_in for local DNS host returns: dnsbl count hash
The dnsbl count hash will have two added keys:
TOTAL the total number of interrogations less whitelist UNION the total number of spam 'hits' HINTs: use Net::NBsocket qw( open_udbNB sockaddr_in ); use Net::DNS::ToolKit qw( get_ns ); my $sock = open_udpNB(); my $sockaddr_in = sockaddr_in(53, scalar get_ns());
Generate a plain text report of the form:
44 100.0% TOTAL IP's interrogated 41 93.2% UNION of all results 34 77.3% dnsbl.sorbs.net comment 22 50.0% GENERIC comment 13 29.5% in-addr.arpa comment 11 25.0% cbl.abuseat.org comment 9 20.5% list.dsbl.org comment 2 4.5% dnsbl.njabl.org comment 1 2.3% bl.spamcannibal.org comment 0 0.0% dynablock.njabl.org comment input: configuration pointer, dnsbl count hash pointer returns: text buffer
The 'comment' comes from the config file 'comment' key field for each specified DNSBL or is blank if there is no 'comment' key.
Generate a report as above but with <tr><td></td></tr> table markup. The <table></table> tags are not generated. If there is a 'url' key field in the respective DNSBL config entry, the DNSBL name is provide with <a href="url">DNSBL</a> tags with the specified 'url' as the 'href' value.
input: configuration pointer, dnsbl count hash pointer returns: html text buffer
A one line example corresponding to the text line above:
34 77.3% dnsbl.sorbs.net with a 'comment' key of: 127.0.0.2,5,7,8,9,10,12 and a 'url' key of: http://www.au.sorbs.net/using.shtml <tr class=dnsbl><td align=right>34</td> <td align=right>77.3%</td> <td align=left><a href="http://www.au.sorbs.net/using.shtml">dnsbl.sorbs.net</a></td> <td align=left>127.0.0.2,5,7,8,9,10,12</td> </tr>
