mmdblookup - a utility to look up an IP address in a MaxMind DB file
mmdblookup --file [FILE PATH] --ip [IP ADDRESS] [DATA PATH]
mmdblookup looks up an IP address in the specified MaxMind DB file.
The record for the IP address is displayed in a JSON-like structure
with type annotations.
If an IP's data entry resolves to a map or array, you can provide a
lookup path to only show part of that data.
For example, given a JSON structure like this:
"cities": [ "Berlin", "Frankfurt" ]
You could look up just the English name by calling mmdblookup with a
lookup path of:
mmdblookup --file ... --ip ... names en
Or you could look up the second city in the list with:
mmdblookup --file ... --ip ... cities 1
Array numbering begins with zero (0).
If you do not provide a path to lookup, all of the information for a
given IP will be shown.
This application accepts the following options:
The path to the MMDB file. Required.
The IP address to look up. Required.
Turns on verbose output. Specifically, this causes this
application to output the database metadata.
Print the program's version number and exit.
